"After reading this, you will want to take up public speaking at once. Buckley knows how to instruct, cover all points of the scary art of holding an audience, soothe you, and keep you amused with his wonderful wit. Some magician!" —Letitia Baldrige, famed authority on etiquette and entertaining. "Rhetoric, the use of spoken words intended to persuade or inspirit, has somehow acquired a bad name. This is perhaps in part because the art of public speaking has fallen on hard times, as anyone can confirm by tuning in to C-SPAN. But Reid Buckley is not reconciled to this sorry state of affairs. If his wise, shrewd, and extremely funny book gets the audience it deserves, the Republic may just get the rhetoric it deserves." —George F. Will, political columnist and author. One of America's most recognized rhetoricians, founder of The Buckley School of Public Speaking, and trainer to famous leaders of business and politics, Reid Buckley rides to the rescue of anyone who's ever trembled behind a podium. With dry wit, impressive learning, and infectious enthusiasm for the fine art of persuasion, this master speaker shows anyone how to survive and even triumph in public speaking, whether your audience is one or millions.About the Author:
