Great Speeches But ...

Great speeches but who are the speakers? In more than half the speeches, the speakers are not introduced. Not is there text indicating who the speakers are. Would be better to have names of speakers rather than chapters in chronological order. How are we supposed to know who the speakers?

Frustrating!!!!

Enjoyed this book

I am a 37 year old black man and I lean center right in my views as a sanctified baptist theologian. Everyone of these messages are important for everyone to hear. Great book

Title to the Chapters

It would be helpful if the chapters were named? I don't know who I'm listening too unless I recognize the voice of the speaker. It would also be helpful to know the time and date of the speech.

Great African Americans? Not the greatest speeches

Assortment of speeches. Sometimes, less is more. Better if at least half were removed.
