Speechwriting in the White House is both art and science, and no one understands that better than Ken Collier. Collier deftly explains how the institutionalization of speechwriting duties evolved along with the rise of the public presidency. Readers will come away equally informed and fascinated by the details as Collier narrates the path presidential speechwriting took from the ghostwriters of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's era to the celebrity staff wordsmiths of the Twenty-First Century. -- Justin S. Vaughn, Boise State University
Ken Collier has written an engaging, historically detailed study of presidential speechwriting. The book is grounded in careful archival research and enlivened by his interviews with presidential speechwriters. It is accessible to undergraduates and informed enough to be of interest to scholars and practitioners. I highly recommend this work to anyone interested in the contemporary presidency. -- Mary E. Stuckey, The Pennsylvania State University
