The Tyranny of Public Discourse: Abraham Lincoln’s Six-Element Antidote for Meaningful and Persuasive Writing

We rated this book:

$24.95


With our current political system in gridlock and the conversation of radicals reduced to bullets, these authors offer what might be the best system of persuasive writing compiled in the twenty-first century, except that it was actually invented hundreds of years ago. Hirsch and Van Haften advise readers to suspend what they already think they know about the subject in order to learn a new way of convincing people of your argument.

Abraham Lincoln taught himself Euclid’s geometrical system and applied it to rhetoric. Lincoln noticed how Thomas Jefferson’s work in the Declaration of Independence utilized the same geometrical logic with clearly convincing results, and then duplicated the formula to write the Gettysburg address.

This compact book goes the extra mile, printed in color on glossy paper for added emphasis, to show how the six elements form triangles of persuasive writing. Written in simple, easy-to-grasp fashion, this book is recommended for anyone in the legal profession, political arena, or marketing business. Whether you are a writer, student, or a professional trying to get your point across, you will find this little treasure indispensable.
