    It's easy to be mediocre, but if you want to give speeches that your audience will never forget, you must listen to this program. In this program, Buckley covers many of the tips and principles for winning arguments and getting your point across that he taught at the prestigious Buckley School for Public Speaking.

    mr. buckley covers the practical, technical and performance components of public speaking and debate. he gives a keen insight in to the mindset of those on the lecture and debate circuit. his command of english is superb, his content thorough, and his Rooseveltesque accent an aural treat.

    In this colorful and intimate narrative, Isaacson provides the full sweep of Franklin's amazing life, from his days as a runaway printer to his triumphs as a statesman, scientist, and Founding Father. He chronicles Franklin's tumultuous relationship with his illegitimate son and grandson, his practical marriage, and his flirtations with the ladies of Paris. He also shows how Franklin helped to create the American character and why he has a particular resonance in the twenty-first century.

    Overall

    this 6hr audiobook is devoid of the necessary detail to bring it to life. it would have probably been 20+ hours unabridged. better to enjoy 6hrs of any other unabridged book to settle for this.
