This book is not only entertaining, but packed with good advise for any talk. My neice asked me to present her and husband for the first time at their wedding. I used the book to prepare and not only did I feel more comfortable, it was actually a big success!! Everyone is a public speaker at one time or another, we just don't realize it. Well worth the price and a great gift for friends and associates.

A great book for everyone, not just for speaking in public. Since purchasing the book, I've used quite a few lines at parties, and got a lot of laughs, especially the one liners about politics. Since I live in Florida, this chapter gave me a lot of material, along with the insults which are quite useful. Enberg and the Morgans have compiled a great reference book that is hilarious. I've even used a few lines from the chapter on perseverence to a group of 5th graders!
Buy this book for entertainment and hilarious one-liners, it's like reading a funny encyclopedia - it definitely covers every occasion.

As I grew up watching Dick Enberg on television, I always wondered how he could write, or reflect, on what was happening before his eyes so well? Clearly, this book helped me answer that question. Mr. Enberg has written a book of quotes unlike any other. He has included in his book, not only those famous quotes with which we are all so familiar, but also quotes that he heard in his every day life. It is this aspect of the book that I found so rewarding, and it is this aspect that helps separate it from similar themed texts. It showed me that one doesn't always have to look for the comedian, world leader, or athlete for guidance. Instead, one can simply listen to the common man (or woman) for answers, advice, and humor. Mr. Enberg realizes that fame doesn't guarantee these attributes, but more importantly, that a lack of fame doesn't prevent one from obtaining any or all of them. This is a fantastic book, put together by a man who can see great qualities in people from all walks of life.

This book is sooooo funny. I keep it in the bathroom next to my Bible. I read a quote a day to put a smile on my face. I am fund raising to the San Diego Blood Bank and The San Diego Zoo.It really helps to be happy, when you asking someone for Money.One of my favorite Quotes is " A word of Advice, Don't give it" It makes me laugh.

I bought this book because of a long history of hearing Dick Enberg as an announcer for the UCLA Bruin basketball and Anaheim Angels baseball teams. Since that time he has become a sports announcing icon, but I've always thought fondly of his early days. This book reveals Enberg's tasteful choice of humor in a full volume collection that is certainly worth the price of admission. I would have liked the book even more if there were more personal stories in it like in the fabulous introduction. I would also have liked to have known who some of the people quoted were like Robert Orben, Georgette Heyer, Glen Super and other not-so-famous to the average guy like me. As an author, I'm always on the lookout for good quotations especially colorful ones with humor. This book is definitely a gem in this genre.

When Wendy Morgan, one of the co-author's of this book first mentioned this book to me, in 2000, honestly, my first thought was, "Okay. I'm busy. I'll take a look at it."

And, yet, as I watch Dick Enberg, during the Chargers versus another team play, I was reminded of my conversation with Wendy.

As it turns out, this is a great resource book for 3 reasons:

1. Speech openings;
2. Paragraph writing ideas; and,
3. Social etiquette.

Here are a few examples from this book:

"We've all heard that everyone's greatest fear is getting up to speak in front of people. As Jerry Seinfeld put it, "The number one fear in life is public speak, and the number two fear is death. This means that if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than giving the eulogy."

"I wasn't kissing her. I was whispering in her mouth." by Chico Marx

"Will the people in the cheaper seats clap your hands? All the rests of you, if you'll just rattle your jewelry..." by John Lennon

Something that surprized me in this book was on pages 44-45:
The authors suggest that you write a 30-second commercial and a 5-minute commercial about yourself; one which you hone, review often and actually read out loud, while looking at yourself in the mirror.

While this is an excellent idea, and useful on many levels, I was surprised to read, one paragraph after this idea the mention of this, not as a 30-second and a 5-minute commercial, but as a 30-60-second commercial.

Overall, this is a great book for speakers, writers, and those who want to be more effective as human beings.
