100 Words to Make You Sound Great presents one hundred words that have been used effectively by presidential greats as well as famous scientists, economists, academics, figures of conscience, and even humorists. Tried and tested by movers and shakers such as Rachel Carson, Shirley Chisholm, Barry Goldwater, Al Gore, Martin Luther King Jr., and Princess Diana, these words get a point across with verve and effect. The quotations that bring these words to life — painstakingly culled from public speeches, widely read books and periodicals, and poignant private letters — are insightful, moving, and funny.

Tear through this content, and before you know it, you’ll feel an affinity for cosmopolitan communication, even if you were a mere tyro when you started out. You’ll incorporate these words into everyday conversation without sounding pedantic or pompous, and you’ll always have the right riposte if someone accuses you of being pusillanimous, amoral, or — heaven forbid — nefarious.
