What we learn, in this collection of speeches from Von Braun, is that selling space to the government has always meant getting popular support. Von Braun launched the space program not just with massive boosters, but with a thousand words spoken to the public. From official release/information:
Book Description: This collection of speeches by Dr. Wernher von Braun—a passionate crusader for worthy causes—touches on a variety of topics, including education, the cold war, religion, and the space program. Mining through more than 500 of von Braun's speeches, given from 1947 to 1976, this important historical document presents an intimate look into the life of one of the most vital contributors to the development of NASA and the American space race.
