Bradford Wheler’s Snappy Sayings-Wit & Wisdom from the World’s Greatest Minds

I received this book courtesy of Mr. Wheler for the purpose of a fair and honest review.

Overview: I’d like to say that this is anything more than a book of quotes. And it is, if you count the abridged biographies.

Story Telling: They’re quotes. What is there to tell?

Likes: I like how the quotes were separate into section to make finding quotes easier. And the biographies were interesting.

Dislikes: The sections: Sex, Marriage, Women, Children, and Religion, were a bit depressing. It was as if the quotes found stated the worst about each subject. And what version did Mr. Wheler use for Jesus’ quote? It wasn’t anything I have ever heard before.

Favorite Character: Normally it would be anyone of the Founding Fathers, but their quotes seemed to be taken out of context. As it is, I’ll take Mark Twain.

Favorite Quote: “No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.” Abraham Lincoln. Keep this in mind before you start it.

Conclusion: I wish some of these quotes weren’t taken out of context, as well as the fact that some of these people didn’t know the difference between love and lust. It’s a nice collection of quotes. I just prefer more. Hope you enjoy it.
