Undelivered By Jeff Nussbaum AudioBook Summary
This program is read by the author and full cast, includes actual audio clips from historical and political figures, and has actors narrating the full text undelivered speeches throughout.
A fascinating insight into notable speeches that were never delivered, showing what could have been if history had gone down a different path
For almost every delivered speech, there exists an undelivered opposite. These “second speeches” provide alternative histories of what could have been if not for schedule changes, changes of heart, or momentous turns of events.
In Undelivered, political speechwriter Jeff Nussbaum presents the most notable speeches the public never heard, from Dwight Eisenhower’s apology for a D-Day failure to Richard Nixon’s refusal to resign the presidency, and even Hillary Clinton’s acceptance for a 2016 victory—the latter never seen until now.
Examining the content of these speeches and the context of the historic moments that almost came to be, Nussbaum considers not only what they tell us about the past but also what they can inform us about our present.
