5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Collection of Quotations
If, in my opinion, you need a reference book of Churchill's remarkable speeches and quotations this is a very useful book.

2.0 out of 5 stars The man was brilliant, this book is not
I struggled through the first part of this book and then gave up. Something I do not ordinarily do. Yes there are some excellent quotes from a man who has to be the most eminent politician of the 20th century and undoubtably a most gifted author and speaker. However, stringing the quotes together, out of historical or other context, makes no sense and is boring...

On the basis that an infinite nuber of monkeys typing for long enough will eventually produce the works of Shakespere, it seems to me that Mr Dell has just produced a work of no value simply by typing. "A vocabulary of truth and simplicity will be of service throughout your life." I have no reason to doubt that this may have been spoken or written by Sir Winston Churchill, almost all of who's books I have read, but out of context it is just rubbish. Avoid!

Total Churchill, fabulous inspiring speeches. It can be made understandable how this great leader had the gift of inspiration. Very good.

Memorable Quotations from Winston Churchill. I have always admired Churchill and this book encapsulates his wit and humour. Couldn't put it down.
