This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No speeches by Martin Luther King Jr, Mohandas Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Malcom X, Ronald Reagan or Elie Wiesel. Only speeches from other American polticians arguing such things as the policy of the Gold Standard.

What did you like best about Great Speeches of the 20th Century? What did you like least?

Obviously, it's quality content. But, it would be nice to know the "who/when/where" of each of the speeches. Many are obvious, but there are more than a few that I couldn't pick out.

Additionally, the chaptering doesn't seem to coincide with the speeches. One chapter contains more than one speech.


Would you be willing to try another book from Bob Blaisdell? Why or why not?
