    Description

    All of us are faced countless times with the challenge of persuading others, whether we're trying to win a trivial argument with a friend or convince our coworkers about an important decision. Instead of relying on untrained instinct - and often failing as a result - we'd win more arguments if we learned the timeless art of verbal persuasion, or rhetoric. How to Win an Argument gathers the rhetorical wisdom of Cicero from across his works and combines it with passages from his legal and political speeches to show his powerful techniques in action. The result is an enlightening and practical introduction to the secrets of persuasive speaking and writing - including strategies that are just as effective in today's offices, schools, courts, and political debates as they were in the Roman forum.

    How to Win an Argument addresses proof based on rational argumentation, character, and emotion; the parts of speech; the plain, middle, and grand styles; how to persuade no matter what audience or circumstances you face; and more. Astonishingly relevant, this anthology of Cicero's rhetorical and oratorical wisdom will be enjoyed by anyone who ever needs to win arguments and influence people.

    Too much commentary and too little Cicero

    I expected more of Cicero and was frustrated that so much of the book was the translator and presenters’ text. Though useful, I found it too much. Quotes from Cicero often appear as illustrations of the presenters’ points, and this does not work to well.

    Apart from this, the book is a well structured presentation of rhetoric and the life of Cicero. I found this both interesting and useful.

    Both speakers, communicators, executives and people interested in ancient history will find inspiration here, and Cicero himself comes out as an impressive figure.

    Excellent invaluable resource

    What a great performance and delivery of content! I will take the advice from this book into practice. There's plenty of information packed in this book even for how short it is.

    This is a biography of Cicero, not "how to" book

    Cicero was a great orator and this book outlines his methods to structure a speech. It's more about Cicero than it is about "How to Win an Argument." in fact, I found d little on the "how to..."
