    Not a Gamble

    'Eat your betting money, but don't bet your eating money,' may be good advice most of the time, but betting $20 of your eating money on this book will get you food for thought. The book groups quotations in categories and starts each category with illuminating and entertaining commentary by editor Paul Lyons. Quotations come from writers, gamblers, saints, sinners, sages, and whatall from all over the world and throughout history. A fun read and a sufficiently authoritative reference for settling inglorious literary wagering. A sure bet.
