If you're looking for a title to your novel or original screenplay, start with this exhaustive compilation of the great quotations of the world. Another reason to use it is to find out whether it was Mark Twain or H. L. Mencken who first said dotty things about California!

Any serious writer, and even those not so serious, will benefit by having this book as a handy reference. I keep my copy close to the computer and use it often. I can't imagine not having it in my own personal library.

I have repeatedly used a previous edition and purchased this for a niece and great niece to have as a resource for everyday quotation questions. It is an essential library addition.
