Thoughts:
How do you review a quotes book?

Some quotes are great and use­ful, some not as much but I can­not review each and every quote. That’s why Quotes Every Man Should Know edited by Nick Mamatas is a chal­lenge to write about.

The book is small, pocket size, so one can put it in the pocket, walk around and use it on demand. Or sim­ply keep it in a con­ve­nient place (desk drawer, glove com­part­ment, etc.) to be eas­ily accessible.

In this day and age, where infor­ma­tion can go ten times around the world before being ver­i­fied, it is nice to have some sort of ver­i­fied resource for infor­ma­tion. Actu­ally it is a hobby of mine to piss off my ultra-conservative and ultra-liberal friends who spew pro­pa­ganda left and right, tak­ing quotes and sto­ries out of con­text to “prove” their own agenda.

The book itself is divided into log­i­cal sec­tions such as Wis­dom of the Ages, Inspi­ra­tion and Action, Pol­i­tics, and Humor among oth­ers. Of course, a whole sec­tion ded­i­cated to manly quotes about Women is also included. Many peo­ple are quoted in this small book, pres­i­dents, artists, philoso­phers, authors and, a must, Bruce Lee.

This is a lit­tle book which, when read in con­text, can be help­ful and funny when needed. I quickly read it, just to know which quotes to ref­er­ence when needed and am look­ing for­ward to using it when needed.
