    Hey it's me again.

    Wondering if anyone here had any suggestions on good books regarding Rhetoric. I googled it and found the same 4 books reviewed everywhere. And I enjoy getting info from people "in the know" so to speak. Just read an article at artofmanliness.com about it and it seems like an interesting (and under utilized) skill.

    Have you read a good bio or Cicero or Aristotle? You might want to research the men who defined the art of rhetoric...seems like a good jumping off point.
