A richly illustrated and wonderfully eclectic collection of THE WORLD'S GREATEST SPEECHES - THE OLD, THE NEW AND THE UNSPOKEN - from the author of the international bestseller, Letters of Note.
Discover speeches that altered the course of history, like NELSON MANDELA's on the day he became South Africa's first black President, and outpourings of much-needed change, such as the impassioned, impromptu appeal for women's rights from SOJOURNER TRUTH, an African-American woman born into slavery. Expect the gloriously unexpected, as KERMIT THE FROG takes to the podium, and celebrate lives well-lived, including TILDA SWINTON's tribute to 'every alien's favourite cousin', DAVID BOWIE.
While some speeches are heard by millions, some remain unspoken- the secret draft prepared for QUEEN ELIZABETH II during a military exercise for World War III, and PRESIDENT NIXON's chilling public announcement should NEIL ARMSTRONG and BUZZ ALDRIN become stranded on the Moon.
Surprising, inspiring and shocking; moving, comforting and enlightening.
SPEECHES OF NOTE- seventy-five extraordinary ways to step into someone else's shoes.

Wonderful and inspirational... [There are] many oratorical delights within this fascinating and well-presented volume... a collection of many efforts that arose emotion, mirth or wonder.... Readable and enlightening. -- WILLIAM HAGUE Spectator Anguish, hope, inclusivity, questioning, grief, love - and seemingly all the parameters of human feeling - are quite brilliantly represented.
