From opening the book at the first sight, I fell in love with this book. Not only this books proves its own authenticity--the dilemma of the feeling of uncertainty that most people face, and the author has tried to be comprehensive--the topics covered are almost all areas that I would expect a speech will get to. With the understanding that I can only utilize the library copy for a short while, I have bought this heavy hardcover copy online as well.
