Eloquence: The Hidden Secret of Words that Change the World

Eloquence: The Hidden Secret of Words that Change the World

Do you wish it was easy to be eloquent?

If you use these proven speaking patterns, it will be.

Eloquence doesn't have to be a mystery. You don't have to face uncertainty or anxiety when you present your ideas. You don't have to constantly question if you're "saying it right."

Millennia ago, Ancient Greeks found hidden patterns in powerful language. Recent scientific studies prove these patterns impact and influence people. History's great speeches rely on them.

What are they?

I know, and this book will teach you.

Without these forgotten frameworks and formulas, eloquence is a guessing game. With them, it is a guarantee.

They allow you to:

  • Speak with confidence
  • Captivate your audience
  • Convince and influence
  • Impact and inspire
  • Structure a clear argument
  • Make your ideas memorable
  • Tell engaging stories

  • The most eloquent leaders of history used these patterns. They are buried in John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address. They are hidden in Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. I've seen them applied over and over again in the legendary words of legendary leaders. Because I know what to look for.

    Are you ready to learn these little-known, time-tested speaking patterns, and unlock instant and easy eloquence?

    Eloquence now includes checklists, diagrams, infographics, and an extended prologue.

    More Info

    Many authors draw from headlines or movies rather than personal experience to write drug-related scenes, and the result may be more fiction than fact. So, how can you craft a convincing scene involving accidental use of fentanyl-tainted pot or a murder attempt with grandma's pain pills?

    A much-needed resource, The Grim Reader details how to write medical scenarios that result in realistic page-turners. As drug inaccuracies multiply in screenplays, scripts, novels, and audio plays, Dr. Miffie Seideman, Pharm.D. provides writers (and editors) with the background and authenticity necessary to develop plausible plotlines, including:

    - Pertinent drug facts, tips, and symptoms
    - Symptom timelines
    - Tips for developing historically accurate scenes
    - Common street drug names and slang
    - Sample scenarios to demonstrate how to weave the information into a believable scene
    - Writing prompts to provide scene starters and offer practice

    Combining Seideman's pharmacology knowledge with her love for creative writing, The Grim Reader is the ultimate guide to help authors craft accurate drug scenes and avoid medical mistakes.
