Overview

If you've ever dined on Chinese food, you have experienced a tradition shared the world over-the opening of the fortune cookie. These remarkably unassuming dessert items contain tiny slips of paper that sometimes convey profound, humorous or remarkably clever messages.

Joel Delman has collected thousands of these fortunes from Chinese restaurants all over the world. He has taken the very best from his collection and compiled them into this charming gift book.

In their crisp, witty way, fortunes can offer real insight and perceptive guidance on life, love, success and happiness. Their apparent simplicity often masks deeper meanings that may not always be appreciated after a large, satisfying meal!

Conveniently packaged for easy digestion, Smart Cookies offers stimulating, often humorous bite-sized morsels of advice that can be cracked open at any time.

This unique gift book includes a few blank pages at the end so you can collect your own favorite fortunes.
