a voice from the past

If you're studying great and moving speeches to improve your own, dip into a new book and audio CD combination, Let Every Nation Know: John F. Kennedy In His Own Words (With Audio CD). Authors Robert Dallek and Terry Golway offer biographical background on the 30-plus speeches, debates, press conferences and other public speaking moments included on the CD, allowing you to reflect and listen. (See our previous post here about Kennedy -- and others'-- tendency to misquote the great thinkers in their speeches.) Among the many fine examples included are several poignant ones: Kennedy's last public remarks, delivered in San Antonio the day before his death, and later tributes by his brothers, Senators Robert and Edward Kennedy.

Check out our sister blog, The Eloquent Woman, for more on giving great speeches and presentations and become a fan of The Eloquent Woman on Facebook.
