It took me a while to get round to reading this book properly its paedagogical heft being somewhat daunting but I am glad I did so For a person coming from a technical background and lacking a classical grounding it may not even be that clear what classical rhetoric really is Unless one has already taken a hobbyist s interest in Aristotelian philosophy or law This book will rectify that deficit very effectively and I daresay it amounts to a full foundational course even for a professional rhetoricianRhetoric has tended to come into bad odour in the last century or so partly because it fell out of favour in teaching for decades and partly because it has attracted an evil smelling resonance with politicians in the public mind What this book makes clear is that rhetoric in fact has both an antiue and an honourable heritage dating back to Socrates and Cicero and further and that part of this heritage is the Greeks search for the Good To persuade it is in some degree necessary to lead by example the man of unimpeachable integrity can better stand before a crowd and ask for their allegiance than the known crook How are the mighty fallenIt is surprising just what a vocabulary has accumulated around rhetoric starting with Aristotle s meticulous classifications There are technical terms for figures of speech than one might dare to imagine The creation of material has also benefited from an analytical approach All of this is covered in the book which finishes with a fairly thorough review of the history of rhetoric since antiuity There is also copious study material including Churchill Rachel Carson Madison and the glorious prose of Martin Luther King who I have come to regard as the master in the modern world of this field Study these people well because they have put in the years of effort and achieved transcendance in many cases truly changing their world with their words A brief grounding in formal logic is provided which it is necessary to understand in order to form sound arguments but which does not actually provide many persuasive ones It is a source of some pain to me as a professional logician or software engineer but it has to be admitted that logic does not sway people in arguments For that you need rhetoricI have not done the exercises in the book and it has to be said that this is not good enough Style comes with application and to get the best out of this work one needs to apply oneself assiduously over a period I hope to remedy this with time but having just read it thoroughly now is the time for a review The exercises include hand transcription of notable rhetoricians texts that one might pay them proper attention analysis of texts and creative writing This is not an NLP style facile modelling but a process of hard analysis and development You need to think about writing and speaking and you need to keep thinking about them Rhetors such as Churchill and King invested decades developing their uniue voiceIf you are up for the work I would judge that this is an excellent place to get a grounding in rhetoric and to acuire excellence in writing or speaking style It is probably insufficient in its own right I would recommend getting lessons on speaking techniue or acting if you wish to address crowds and if you want to be a good writer to read and write about everything you can get your hands on The best foundation for accomplished rhetoric is a good liberal education and a sense of curiosity about the world and the book makes that clear I might recommend a copy of A Handlist of Rhetorical Terms as a companion to expand your mastery of the rhetorical toolkit Otherwise this book supplies copious suggestions for source and resource material
