From Library Journal:

Lloyd and Mitchinson have another hit on their hands. Readers who enjoyed their trivia compendium, The Book of General Ignorance, will love this collection of quotations. Instead of baffling, fascinating, and annoyingly technical trivia, this book includes over 600 quotations organized by subject (and by subject alphabetically) and an index of quoted persons (with birth and death dates, where appropriate, and profession). Only a handful of quotes are listed in two sections, as the authors-who write that quotations are like catnip for them-have managed to select pithy, single-minded statements. The quality of organization makes this title suitable as a reference work, but relegating it from circulation would be sinful. VERDICT The content is wickedly fun and truly runs the gamut; Jack Handey and Aristotle can be found in close proximity. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys wit and a good turn of phrase.-Audrey Snowden, Cleveland P.L. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
