Brilliant! Learn from history's success stories.
If you could sum up The Art of Public Speaking: Lessons from the Greatest Speeches in History in three words, what would they be?
Listen, Learn, Apply
What did you like best about this story?
The professor is very engaging and the examples from history were very well selected.
Each story has a purpose.
Which scene was your favorite?
Queen Elizabeth addressing the troops as an example of how to connect with your audience.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The importance of storytelling and how to apply the lesson to all your speaking.
Also, it was encouraging to hear that Mark Twain was so nervous about his major speech that he took steps to prepare (which I can apply to my own speaking as well).
Any additional comments?
This course is not only informative, but fun as well.

Ask what the greats can teach you
Very interesting look at the art of public speaking by looking at the greats including Gandhi, Churchill, Kennedy, Reagan, King and other from form ancient times for insight on how we can be better in the art. The academician look at the topic was an interesting twist that shows how much of the art is timeless and unchanging.

Really interesting and useful stuff
I've been a public speaker for years and this little set of lectures taught me so much I didn't know. Worth every penny!

Inspirational for you who give speeches
Provides vivid examples andclear rules for good speeches. The rest is up to using it. With this I mean that the examples and rules are good indeed, but there is still much work to translate your own subject and objective in rhe form of a good speech.
