Product description

Review

`serves an important purpose in setting the record straight about certain historical figures, Hampstead & Highgate Express

`an excellent source' Evening Advertiser

'An infectiously browsable book.' Ray Olson

'You cannot fool all the people all of the time (not Abraham Lincoln), and the authors of this carefully researched and readable treasury help to put the records as straight as they are ever likely to be. [But] sticklers for accuracy, and those who like dropping bits of useless information to liven flagging conversations, will find this a source of delight.' Manchester Evening News

'well-researched' Daily Mail

'an excellent source for those of us not well read enough to know even the misquotations' Evening Advertiser

an amusing collection of quotations' Paul Thomas, Slough, Eton & Windsor Observer

'an amusing collection of quotations' Berks & Bucks Observer

'The anthology is huge fun, but is serious enough to make us think hard too.' Bath & West Evening Chronicle

About the Author

Paul F. Boller is Professor of History Emeritus at Texas Christian University and John George is Profesor of Political Science and Sociology, Central State University, Oklahoma
