It's pretty clear that Romm has an axe to grind against the political right and especially against those who don't believe in climate change. It's his stock in trade, which he points out.
Looking beyond that, however, it's clear he's studied both the messages and the messengers to the point where he has weaponized the methods of rhetoric. The information comes at the reader hard and fast, but it's solid and instantly usable by anyone looking to improve their oratory capabilities.

If you could sum up Language Intelligence in three words, what would they be?
Informative, useful, interesting.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Shakespeare, for creating so many favorite characters of his own.
What does Drew Birdseye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
An intelligent voice, with emphasis in all the right places.
What insight do you think you’ll apply from Language Intelligence?
I will strive to tell the story of my non-profit as an extended metaphor, using simple words, and repeat the mission/vision often while I paint a bright picture of the future that donors will bring about.
Any additional comments?
This is a great book for anyone who needs to convince anyone of anything, which means, for all of us! I didn't realize the common threads that run through the works of Shakespeare, Lincoln, the King James version of the Bible and lyrics from some of my favorite modern songwriters, and, knowing what those threads are, how to apply them to my own work and my own life. Dr. Romm's incites will be incredibly helpful to anyone who needs to write headlines, tweets, and stories to compel people to action. I highly recommend this book to all who want to be noticed and heard, and all who want to understand how others may compel you to act or feel a certain way through the skilled use of rhetoric.
