"I teach an introductory public speaking course at a local university and start each class with a speech from one of these DVDs. They're wonderful examples of great public speaking and, I hope, an inspiration to my students. For anyone who appreciates history and major political figures, this is a terrific collection to own."

"Raw footage, no complete speeches so far. I haven't seen them all yet but I'm not impressed with the quality. Probably won't buy from Speech Works again."
