Synopsis: A former speech writer for Presidents Eisenhower, Nixon, Ford, and Reagan captures the essence of Winston Churchill's personality by collecting the most inventive, intelligent, and humorous things the great statesman has ever said, plus anecdotes about him, and information on his tastes, views, and opinions.

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
