Thank you for Arguing. What Aristotle, Lincoln, and Homer Simpson can teach us about the art of persuasion. Jay Heinrichs. 2007. ISBN 9780307341440. I heard about this book and Heinrich’s from a recent BusinessWeek article about his booming consulting business (March 31) . The book is a treat and a trip. through self deprecating humour and great examples he draws you into the world of rhetoric. I like this material so much that I have become addicted to his blog http://www.figarospeech.com/. If you are in sales and or marketing this is a foundational book. But do not stop there, we can all learn from this delightful book. Its a quick easy read that could change your life.
