As a big fan of One-Liners;I've got to tell you ;this book is simply awesome!!
Steven has assembled some of the best from over the years and many that are very current. To prove the point,we get this one about someone who is about as current as you can get."This is one Hilton that should be closed for renovation." Mr.Blackell on Paris Hilton. Then we go way back to Shakespeare and from ,All's Well That Ends Well,"He's a most notable coward,an infinite and endless liar,an hourly promise breaker,the owner of not one good quality."
Another great thing about this collection is that it gives both the originator as well as the receiver of the insult;such as,"When you talk to him,he looks at you and grins and grins and nods and nods and appears to be the world's greatest listener,until you realize he is not listening at all."-Latty King on Willie Nelson.
Politics and History provide pleanty of material,such as;"What makes him think a middle-aged actor,who's played with a chimp,could have a future in politics?"--Ronald Reagan on Clint Eastwood's Carmel,California,mayoral bid.
Then from Show Business we get "It's a new low for actresses when you have to wonder what's between her ears instead of between her legs."-Katherine Hepburn on Sharon Stone.
Sports is also loaded with one-liners .Here's a couple; "One's a born liar,and the other's been convicted."-Billy Martin on New York Yankee superstar Reggie Jackson and owner George Steinbrenner. And; "A lot of people are using two-piece cues nowadays.Alex Higgins hasn't got one because they don't come with instructions."-Steve Davis on snooker world champion,Alex Higgins.
This collection will entertain you for hours,a great book for throne musings,and a great resource for responses at any occasion.
I love it!!!
