From Shaun Usher, the author of the international bestseller Letters of Note, comes an obsessively curated, richly illustrated and sumptuously produced collection of speeches from throughout the ages. Seventy-five extraordinary ways to step into someone elses shoes.

Discover speeches that altered the course of history, like Nelson Mandelas on the day he became South Africas first black President, and outpourings of much-needed change, such as the impassioned, impromptu appeal for womens 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 Swintons tribute to every aliens 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 Nixons chilling public announcement should Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin become stranded on the Moon. Surprising, inspiring and shocking; moving, comforting and enlightening.
