Will this book help someone learn to speak better, or is there something more helpful youd recommend? I'm tutoring someone who has a lot of difficulty stringing together words for abstract concepts.

    If you want to speak better, learn Latin and Greek, homie.

      I actually learned Latin and found it very helpful for my speaking. But teaching him an entire language isn't really possible in this situation.

        The authors credentials are unnecessary really. If I avoid those books it is because most of the time they are boring and not that good

          Your kneejerk reaction to seeing academic credentials, on an author of a classical academic subject, is to do a 360 and walk away.
          That's just anti-intellectualism.

            "Intellectuals" make the worst writers. Academia papers are sleep pills made text

    Aristotle’s Rhetoric for a classical background

    If I had to recommend five books on developing a rhetoric, this is one along with Classical Rhetoric for the Modern Student, The Elements of Eloquence, Farnsworth's Classical English Rhetoric, and Kindly Inquisitors: The New Attacks on Free Thought. It's great for argumentative and persuasive writing but in terms of developing style and craft, there's other stuff I'd recommend

        Ernest Hemingway - On Writing
        Richard Lanham - Revising Prose
        Jack Hart - Storycraft: Narrative Nonfiction
        Thomas and Turner - Clear and Simple as the Truth
        Waddell, Esch, and Walker - the Art of Styling Sentences

        And, of course, to read a wide variety of writers and study their styles.

          No, but it will help you think better.
          10/10. would recommend.

          All good speaking is good thinking.
