Review:

A handy bon mot is a beautiful thing. For launching a speech, wrapping up a term paper, concluding an argument, or merely waxing sophisticated in front of those you'd like to impress, there's nothing like a well-turned phrase with the authoritative stamp of having been uttered originally by someone else. Webster's quips and epigrams are tidily arranged in more than 200 categories--everything from "Acting" ("Acting is not an important job in the scheme of things. Plumbing is." --Spencer Tracy) to "Youth" ("Youth is wasted on the young." --George Bernard Shaw). It's a compact book, light enough to browse one-handed, small enough to fit in a purse, and full of adages, anecdotes, apothegms, and axioms--more than 2,500 in all, and cross-referenced by topic and author--that are absorbing, browsable, and abundantly quotable. --Stephanie Gold
