Chicago Motivational Speaker Book Reviews

 

 

 

 

 

An enjoyable small book (174 pages) featuring seventeen concise essays on The Great Emancipator. Essays are provided by politicians – Mario Cuomo, Legal Eagles – Sandra Day O’Connor, Historians – Doris Kearns Goodwin and many others who have been influenced by Lincoln.

As with most books on Lincoln, the material is hagiographic and rarely critical. Kearns Goodwin encapsulates her fine book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln in a few short pages, although I think she has zero sense of objectivity about the man.

Sandra Day O’Connor’s essay on the Suspension of Habeas Corpus written in clear layman’s English is interesting and posits that even in the direst situation that Lincoln only used it for military purposes and not to dispose of political enemies.

The most interesting essay is on Mary Lincoln. Historian Jean Baker dispels myths about a woman long presented as an eccentric, over-spending, cold-hearted woman. While she was no angel, she was badly served by a nation and particularly her son Robert who had her committed to a mental institution with little justification.

If you are looking for a number of different reflections by Lincoln authorities, this is the book for you. However, don’t expect a high degree of objectivity.

Book review written by Conor Cunneen who is a Chicago based keynote speaker, motivational humorist and business humorist. In his ongoing and never ending effort to attract search engine queries, this inspirational, funny, motivational, humorous keynote speaker on business, foodservice, cancer and customer service apologizes profusely for the ridiculous level of repetition as he describes himself as a:

* Humorous keynote speaker

* Inspirational keynote speaker

* Business keynote speaker

* Irish keynote speaker

* Award winning humorous keynote speaker etc.

* Keynote speaker – Cancer

* Keynote speaker – Healthcare

* Keynote Speaker – Foodservice

* Keynote Speaker – Pharma

 

The fact is this type of consistent reference to humorous keynote business speaker – foodservice, pharma, cancer etc. (oh, give over Conor) helps you – through search engine queries – find this Irishman who can regale your conferences and events with a true Gift of GAB and very thought-provoking material.

You can contact humorous keynote speaker and Chicago based Irishman Conor Cunneen at 630 718 1643. He will be delighted to provide you with additional reasons why he can justify all the ramblings about being a humorous keynote speaker – business, pharma, foodservice etc.
