Review:

..." well indexed and easy to use ... Using humor and scholarship equally, this title does not attempt to be comprehensive or complete but strives to serve as both "pleasure reading" and "ready reference" for the general reader and the experienced professional. ... Although other quotation collections may first come to mind, this is the title that should be give to selective quotation seekers, who will appreciate its fascinating content. Useful to any audience." --Choice
