Inspiring, educational and most enjoyable. Highly recommended to anyone with even a slight interest in this man, his legacy or the resilience and capacity of the human spirit.

Very disappointing, a lackluster and totally unhumourous approach to teaching humour in that section of the audiobook was a huge turn off that took away from some of the relevant points made later on the rule of three etc. Author reedemed himself a little at the very end with an excellent analysis of winning speeches but for me it was too little too late.
