Speak Like Churchill, Stand Like Lincoln: 21 Powerful Secrets of History's Greatest Speakers

Customer Reviews:

Wonderful Tool For Speakers

By Bryan "scbryanw" - February 26, 2003

I expected a lot from this book and was still pleasantly surprised. James C. Humes is a very experienced speechwriter and speaker that takes the time to tell you some great secrets of public speaking. The book goes through every aspect of speaking from opening to closing and beyond. Each section has many great ideas to take from it. There was no chapter that I did not walk away from saying, "That was a great idea!" When he makes a recommendation, he backs it up with supporting facts and real stories that illustrate the point. The book is also easy to read. The writing style is easy to read and is interesting. Humes seamlessly ties in stories from the great speakers of history to demonstrate his ideas. Many of the stories are humorous, but all are good. Humes is also very clear in his recommendations, which leaves little confusion on the reader's part. I would recommend this to anyone interested in public speaking.

It's all about power

By Jason - December 31, 2005

Each chapter of the book is divided into chapters that start with the word power. It's a power pause, or a power word. Excuse the overuse of the word, but the thoughts are very powerful for anyone wishing to improve their public speaking skills, writing skills, and presentation skills.

Brevity, the use of a quote, silence, eye-contact, the use of a meaningful statistic, humor, lessons, and more; nearly everything one needs to learn about the power of words is in this book.

One would think that a book like this is a guaranteed nighttime-read, one that is sure to induce sleep. On the contrary, this book has several interesting tidbits, historical facts, and quotes that are meaningful and entertaining.

This book is a tool; it is a great read that should be in public speaking classes across the nation.

speaking like churchill

By Eric Fitzpatrick - July 3, 2006

This is an excellent book for speakers os any level who wish to make small yet noticeable improvements to their speaking performance. Churchill and Lincoln both mastered the skills necessary to be great speakers. The greatest secret that I took from this book is the power of the ..... PAUSE. To stand in front of a group of people saying nothing , with poise and confidence , is a skill the truly seperates great speakers from the rest.

I would recommend this book without hesitation.
