A witty, elegant enquiry into the art of persuasion
Reading this book is the equivalent of lounging in a leather club armchair, wreathed in cigar smoke and a couple of whiskies down, alongside a companion who's being funny and clever about Homer and Hello! magazine by turns.
Entertaining ... You finish this book more than ready to rock a first in rhetoric.
This is the best available analysis
Witty and revealing ... the chapter on Arrangement alone would probably bump up most student degrees by a class, not to mention the average oration
Leith gives modern relevance to an ancient practice. Read this entertaining and instructive book and you will never again mistake an occultatio for an occupatio.
