First, this edition is helpful for those who like to see the "big picture" toward the beginning of study. There is a well written and insightful introduction as well as a one paragraph summary of each chapter. Very nice.

I picked this translation after thumbing through three or four alternatives at a used bookstore. This seemed readable, yet not dumbed down. A great find.

I enjoyed reading the articles on how to game plan to deliver a speech or debate by taking account of audience and their emotions. I have used it at work for speaking in front of colleagues. It makes me a better person- conversing with family and neighbors.

Aristotle, depending upon the translation, can be quite the slog. This isn't something most would read for pleasure. I chose it over the Lawson-Tancred translation because it's a bit more of an accessible translation and it has plenty of introductory materials and over views to help students make sense of the prose.

If you're into the English language, debate, or just being persuasive, you really should start with this book. It's a little thick for reading material - definitely not a beach book. But it's filled with tried and true aphorisms and directions to becoming a better speaker and writer. Go, Aristotle!
