The Penguin Book of Twentieth century Speeches Book Description:

"Now, in The Penguin Book of Twentieth-century Speeches, Brian MacArthur has collected the great speeches which shaped this century - from Theodore Roosevelt's call to the 'strenuous life' in 1899 to Lyndon Johnson's summons to the Great Society in 1964; from Lloyd George's 'People's Budget' of 1909 to Geoffrey Howe's thrusting of the dagger into Margaret Thatcher in 1990; from Roger Casement in the dock in 1914 to Salman Rushdie in the dock in 1991; from Emmeline Pankhurst to Betty Friedan; from Mahatma Gandhi to Jawaharlal Nehru; and from Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky to Khrushchev and Solzhenitsyn. There are presidents and prime ministers, soldiers and poets, dreamers and destroyers. The Penguin Book of Twentieth-century Speeches is the perfect source book for those engaged in making speeches themselves, for students and for anyone wishing to read precisely what was said during a half-remembered speech. Yet more than this, the book also offers an exhilarating reading experience: for it brings together the speeches which, in the words of Robert Kennedy, sent forth those 'ripples of hope' that inspired men and women around the world and throughout the century."--BOOK JACKET.

The Penguin Book of English Verse Book Description:

Celebrating seven centuries of English verse, this definitive anthology reflects the wonderfully diverse voices and concerns of successive generations of poets and the evolving poetic landscape through the ages. Its acclaimed revolutionary structure redefines the idea of the poetry anthology, presenting the works in the order in which they first appeared, rather than divided by poet. Through the words of the well known and the anonymous, in epitaphs, ballads, and folk and nonsense poems, The Penguin Book of English Verse reveals the whole tradition in an exhilarating new light. This edition includes a preface by Paul Keegan, setting out his innovative organizational principles, and indexes of poets, first lines and titles.

A Modest Book About How to Make an Adequate Speech Book Description:

Most of us dread public speaking. But at some point we find ourselves forced to make a speech. And we worry: Will my jokes fall flat? What if I freeze? Is it okay to read notes? What if people walk out? This book won't magically transform you into a fast-talking corporate hotshot. But it will show you how to think about public speaking in a new way, and with a spot of luck, you will achieve adequacy. Or better! Drawing on ancient principles of rhetoric and his own entertaining successes and failures on the speech-giving circuit, John-Paul Flintoff provides simple but effective techniques to help you to speak with confidence to any crowd, whether it's a work presentation or a best friend's wedding. Humble but motivating, this is a guide to finding your voice, even if it's a bit croaky at first, and a reassuring affirmation that we all have something to say.
