A follow-up to The 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said—a fresh selection of sharp, witty zingers gathered from both famous and utterly unknown (but quotable) sources.

A fresh selection of sharp, witty zingers gathered from both famous and utterly unknown (but very quotable) sources, by the editor of the popular The 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said

Robert Byrne’s quote books are widely praised as authoritative and accessible sources of sayings for any and all occasions. Byrne’s own wit, diligent research, and creativity combine to form a fresh go-to reference that serves readers better than Google—no Wi-Fi required. The 2,548 Wittiest Things Anybody Ever Said is an all-new collection of clever quips and laugh-out-loud punch lines from Gracie Allen to Frank Zappa, on such topics as sex, divorce, religion, fashion, animals, and money:

STEVE MARTIN: “I’d do anything for a good body except exercise and eat right.”

JON STEWART: “War is God’s way of teaching Americans geography.”

NORA EPHRON: “Successful parents have adult children who can pay for their own psychoanalysis.”

This compilation, to be enjoyed by generations young and old, deserves a place of honor on every language lover’s bookshelf.

About the Author:

Robert Byrne is the author of seven novels, five collections of humorous quotations, seven books on billiards, and an exposé of frauds in the literary world. Byrne was born and raised in Dubuque, Iowa, where he has a regular humor column in the Dubuque Herald Times. Visit his website at Byrne.org.

From Booklist:

Even though it may be easy enough to find a quote online, books of quotations are still great fun for both the casual browser and the serious writer. Byrne’s book is a fresh collection of creative zingers, from famous as well as lesser-known sources. Categories include the expected “Dating,” “Children,” “Education,” and “Politics” as well as the amusing “Hooey” and “Stupidity.” A good, affordable choice for public library collections. --Rebecca Vnuk
