5.0 out of 5 stars It makes me want more!
The Wit and Wisdom of Discworld (Doubleday, 2007), compiled by Stephen Briggs, includes Briggs' favorite quotations from Terry Pratchett's Discworld books. Of course, it can't include them all. To accomplish that, as Briggs said, "I might as well have tied a set of the novels up with string and added a tag: 'The Complete Wit of Pratchett'."

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing offering
I love Terry Pratchett. His Discworld books are so well developed and his characters all have such human flaws that you can identify with, and like - even the trolls!

simple piece of computer generated output without any editorial or commentary. Good to read remembered content but a little editorialising would have been nice.

A mish-mash of quotes giving a true flavour of all the books in the discworld series. Hilarious and thought provoking by turns. Easy to pick up and put down, perfect for the smallest room, to dip in and out of as you..erm...go...

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quotes, 18 Oct 2013
This review is from: The Wit And Wisdom Of Discworld (Paperback)
Wonderful collection of iconic quotes, separated by book titles, instantly brings back memories of each. Funny even if you haven't read the particular book but funnier if you have. Highly recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars A good reference book, 18 Jun 2013

This review is from: The Wit And Wisdom Of Discworld (Paperback)
Other peples reviews were a bit misleading. One of them extolled the raggedey edges of the book which certainly did not appear on my copy. But acts as a great reminder of all the books ones read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wit & Wisdom of Discworld, 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A guided browse through the novels, picking out characters and characteristics of Terry Pratchett's amazingly coherent fantasy world. A useful reminder of the way that the novels dovetail and invaluable navigation for readers who do not have the full library or do not know if they have all the stories of particular characters or locations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 30 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book was delivered in time and in good condition, and cheap! This book would be a great starter for people who have never read T. Pratchet. The book is full of witty one-liners and hilarious extracts from his books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty stuff...,, 24 July 2012

This review is from: The Wit And Wisdom Of Discworld (Paperback)
Bought as a birthday present for my Pratchett mad mother - and she LOVES this...!!!
A collection of "old" wit and wisdom-like excerpts from just about all the books to date - it does exactly what it says on the dustcover...
...maybe only for die-hard afficianados - it was appreciated here...!!!

some great extracts....reminded me how great some of the books were and good for inspiring one to re-read them. Or a great introduction for anyone not familiar with the discworld series.
