Those who expect this audiobook to feature transcripts or dramatic readings of never-delivered speeches from historical figures such as JFK and Dwight Eisenhower will be surprised, but not disappointed, to find that author-narrator Jeff Nussbaum himself is the real star of this audiobook. A veteran Washington speechwriter himself, Nussbaum shares the context behind never-delivered orations prepared for a nuclear strike on Cuba, the failure of the D-Day landings, and others--some of which he unearthed through his own detective work. His narration is a master class on how political speeches are crafted, and he's such a compelling guide that listeners will find the speeches themselves--excerpts from which are narrated by voice actors in the appendix--are something of a letdown compared with Nussbaum's reflections.
