About the Author:

James C. Humes is a former speechwriter for Presidents Eisenhower, Nixon, Ford, and Reagan. He has written numerous books, including Instant Eloquence, Podium Humor, The Sir Winston Method, Citizen Shakespeare, and The Wit & Wisdom of Winston Churchill. He lives in Philadelphia.

From Booklist:

In this panegyric, every line naturally reflects well on Churchill, so look in vain for the man's apologies for blunders like the Dardanelles. Instead, the now-standard classics from 1940 abound, nestling as they do somewhere in most sentient minds: "We shall fight on the beaches . . . " etc. These are followed by a lighter touch, a section on Churchill's acid talent for sarcastic retorts. (Lady Astor: "Winston, if you were my husband I'd poison your coffee." Churchill: "If you were my wife, I'd drink it.") So drink up, idolaters and toastmakers, for any one of these thousand witticisms could start a speech, or end an opponent's overly long one. Gilbert Taylor
