If you are looking for a book that is essential, buy this one. There are very good speeches and you can learn a lot about speech craft. I read the whole book within three sittings and this book helped me a lot. I know how to speak but I understand that public speaking is an art. You can master the art of public speaking by reading this book.
The good thing is you can experience a variety of topics written in simple, moderate and advanced English. Do not be afraid. If you find some speeches difficult to understand, reread them so that you can understand them. This is like a handbook on public speaking. There are very stimulating speeches which you may not have heard in your life. Read this book. You will be surprised.
The price is right and it is worth the few dollars you spend. It is worth reading as well.The speeches vary in style and length. Some speeches run into 1500 words while others run into 3000 words like. However, it is very easy to read a speech within 15 minutes. If you read a speech a day, within a short period of time you will have read all the speeches.
