4.0 out of 5 stars Fun to browse
This is a satisfyingly chunky, shiny paperback in which plenty of quotations are given, divided into sections according to topics/themes. These range from Ability to Youth (no zoos?) via Dreams, Jazz and Poverty.

This is a satisfyingly chunky, shiny paperback in which plenty of quotations are given, divided into sections according to topics/themes. These range from Ability to Youth (no zoos?) via Dreams, Jazz and Poverty. There is a list of subjects at the front and an author index at the back so that, if you are absolutely sure of the main idea of the quotation and/or its originator, you can find it easily. Each saying is attributed in detail and, if it is about a person, that person is named. My reservation is that there is no key-word index and some quotations have more than one topic. This means that you could look up the wrong topic for a quotation you vaguely remember and miss it. I think it is more a book to read than a reference tool, though it would be handy for a public speaker or writer who knows what he/she wants to say and needs a useful aphorism.
