Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Over 1,100 snippets by known and unknown figures from classical the modern times, more useful to read as entertainment or to use in speeches than for the information they convey, though many spark insights. They are arranged in topical sections such as analysis, equation, perceptions, and weight. The collection is supported by cartoons, a bibliography, and author and subject indexes. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
