Here we have a book which could only have been pitched at the true fan of Britain's best loved comedy series. This 2012 publication, to which the great Del Boy, Sir. David Jason provided a forward, consists of the most memorable one-liners from all the major characters. Therefore, if you aren't already familiar with the show, they'll mean nothing to you, and as this is not a book which delves into the history of all the characters and the programme itself, you'll find no background information to help you understand. There are plenty of good books which do tick the former boxes however, including The Complete A-Z of Only Fools and Horses, which is well-worth the investment.

'The Wit and Wisdom of Only Fools and Horses' is not a very big book at all, it has 160 pages, with two quotes per page in large font, so you don't have to be the world's quickest reader at all to be able to finish it in one sitting. Then again, I don't think this is one of those books that many people will read from cover to cover anyway, but instead, it's something to dip in and out, to pass onto your mate or family member, in order to give you and a fellow fan a good chuckle at some of the most memorable dialogue ever spoken in British sitcom.

The quotations are placed under various chapters covering various recurring themes within the programme, including 'Art, Music and Literature', 'Business', 'Family', 'Food and Drink', 'Health', 'Life', 'Love and Romance', and 'Money', with are lots of good black-and-white pictures of all the characters inside to illustrate throughout.

'The Wit and Wisdom of Only Fools and Horses; is a nice quick read, which makes for a good little companion piece to any 'Only Fools and Horses' devotee. Ideal as a gift, or as a stocking filler.

I'm a huge ofah fan and this book has plenty of funny one liners, but at £1.79 it's daylight robbery. Forget the 160 pages in the description, it's just taken me under 15 minutes to read it. lots of space filling - large font, two jokes per page taking up only half the space. Save your money.

I found that what was in the book was very amusing and entertaining, but overall I thought that the book was too small and not enough reading. It could have been a bit larger.

The book is for a real fan who likes everything about the show. Would not mean a great deal to anyone who does not know OFAH very well. Good stocking filler.

I bought this as you do as a huge OFAH fan ,but to be honest I found it rather boring and very lazily written and quite pointless . Any fan will know all these quotes and clips from the show so you are not actually reading anything new here :(
4 out of 10 for me :(

Hopefully this will start a trend for proper Saturday night viewing instead of things like The Voice and Strictly Come Dancing; also quietening down of the manic clapping and screaming from the audience, although probably encouraged by the producers.

Well what can you say about this, it may only be small but it will make you laugh every time you read it. Bought a couple for stocking fillers and they went down a treat
