Library Journal - Library Journal
This collection of some 10,000 quotes from 3900 people, 1950-1987, proves that modern men and women are smart, witty, and pithy, and stack up pretty well against the talkers of the past as recorded by Bartlett. We have lived through tough times; perhaps all times are tough, and if so, this collection is a contemporary comment on eternal topics. Our times have been unique, too, and this is as readable a history of themoral history, so to speakas one is likely to find. Subject arrangement with subject, author, and key-word index; sources listed. Highly recommended for reference and browsing collections.William A. Wortman, Miami Univ. Lib., Oxford, Ohio
