This collection of speeches by journalist Bill Moyers, delivered over the last several decades, serves both as a tribute to the ideas of freedom and democracy and to Moyers's own legacy and cultural influence. Whether speaking at the funeral of Lady Bird Johnson or addressing students at West Point, Moyers's mastery of oratory cannot be underappreciated. With extensive experience in front of an audience, Moyers skillfully executes speech after speech with a good balance of building tension and fervor. Unlike the print publication, the audio version provides the actual recorded speeches given at the time they were spoken. While this means that the sound quality and clarity can be lacking at times, the authenticity of the delivery certainly makes up for it.
