I have, myself (EXPLETIVE), full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made (ANAPHORA) as they are being made (EXPLETIVE) we shall prove ourselves once again able to defend our Island home, to ride out the storm of war (METAPHOR), and to outlive (PARALLELLISM) the menace of tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary alone (ANAPHORA).

My Whole-Brain Presenting book has just been revised and updated. It now includes all the material and content from my Body Language e-book, so you get TWO great books for the price of ONE! This is no wide-margined, big-fonted, double-spaced pamphlet masquerading as a book. It's a serious work - 386 pages and 85,000 words, all for the original price of £9.95 ($13.50).
