Never Give In: The Best of Winston Churchill's Speeches

best if you do the audio because it's sooo good.  if you can't, the book is good too.  he was an interesting guy.  even in the things he got wrong, there is instruction.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I actually heard this last summer as part of a larger history of WWII. It was fascinating!

it is.  it's pretty long, but he had a long career.  i think the speeches were put together by his son.  many i have read, but hearing them in his own voice brings more.

i wish i could get behind him because i like a lot of his domestic policy.  his foreign policy sucks.  he'd never get his domestic plan through congress and he'd have a better chance with his foreign policy.  can't support that, but he's interesting.
