great book for any public speaker

I finally read Andy Stanley's book on preaching. I'd been wanting to for a long time, and finally got to it. I recommend it to all. The main point of the book is that every sermon should be boiled down to one point.

He says that there are five questions that preachers always need to keep before them as they are preparing their messages:
1. What do they need to know? (INFORMATION)
2. Why do they need to know it? (MOTIVATION)
3. What do they need to do? (APPLICATION)
4. Why do they need to do it? (INFORMATION)
5. How can I help them remember it? (REINTERATION)
