Will Rogers Speaks is an encyclopedic compendium of quotes from Accidents to Zeigfeld, which range from stoically satirical to gut-splittingly original. The over 1,000 quotes from America's best-loved humorist address subjects as divers as Democrats and Republicans, Gun Control, Education, Revolution, Taxes, Intolerance, Congress, and the Presidency. From touring rope act to vaudeville, Zeigfeld to the movies, after-dinner speaker to lecture circuit, Will Rogers captured the imagination of all he encountered. His daily newspaper pieces were syndicated, delighting 40 million readers - at a time when the entire population of the U.S. was 120 million. They were the first thing read over morning coffee, whether in the White House or in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia. In 1930, Rogers began a series of Sunday radio broadcasts and immediately became radio's most popular commentator. On August 15, 1935, he died in a plane crash near Barrow, Alaska, with famed aviator Wiley Post. Of the sources of the most frequently used quotations in today's speeches and writings, Will Rogers' material is firmly secured in the number three position, topped only by the Bible and Shakespeare.About the Author:
