Khrushchev's Shoe, by Roy Underhill

This book is about public speaking:   the title continues "and other ways to captivate an audience of 1 to 1,000."     The author is the woodworking world's Roy Underhill;  public television fans might recognize him as the host of the Woodwright's Shop.

There's no woodworking here.  Just logical advice, laid out clearly, with a few useful anecdotes and some stories.   A solid book, in the Shaker tradition of furniture making.   Simple, practical, useful.

But surprisingly little is said about Khrushchev but that he regretted becoming a spectacle.
