'Whether you're Republican or Democrat, this book provides useful information for anyone wanting to improve one's speaking skills...it isn't a political book, but rather one that focuses on that Obama Magic: just how does the man do it? There are a number of things Leanne addresses: things such as body language, mannerisms, alliteration, repetition, pacing, and most importantly, how to tie the speech into one's own life. One of the techniques Obama is known for is his ability to relate to his listeners by using his own life and struggles and then comparing such to that of the struggling American. One is also shown the ways in which controversy can be avoided, and dealt with in such a way that is both assertive, yet non-aggressive.' - BlogCritics.org
'There are plenty of lessons to be learned from this book even if one doesn't agree with Obama's thoughts and beliefs. Dr. Leanne succeeds in thoughtfully mixing public speaking and politics to produce a useful guide for all.'--Dallas South Blog
