"President Brodhead's passion, commitment, and leadership have helped make Duke University a great place to learn and grow. The wisdom he shares in this book is valuable to all those dedicated to education, service, and leadership. It was an honor to be on his team!" — Coach Mike Krzyzewski
“Speaking of Duke is a remarkable collection of speeches offering rare and valuable insight into the thinking of a university president. While addressing key issues and challenges facing American higher education and our society, Richard H. Brodhead also tells Duke’s story with eloquence and authenticity, offering inspiration for both current and future academic leaders.” — Freeman A. Hrabowski III, President of The University of Maryland, Baltimore County
"Only someone who loves letters could write and speak as Richard H. Brodhead does. This is about his journey at Duke but it is no ordinary collection of lectures to young people or statements about the role of the university. He tackles some of the toughest questions facing American higher education, but in a way that connects the big idea to a real person. He writes for the reader. You'll want to read this curled up in front of a fire.” — Judy Woodruff
