Obama's speeches are carefully crafted for many reason and yes he obviously uses pacing in his speeches and it's successfully lowers our critical thinking and allows suggestions to slip through that filter into our subconsciousness minds. Once you understand the techniques you can see how they are being used
But one thing the book is wrong about, Obama doesn't write these speeches. He only reads them. Someone else takes the time and write these, they put in these techniques.
