What a misfire! Sure, this thing is big, but it cannibalizes existing quotations dictionaries. There is little here that is original. Alan Greenspan has four quotes--and not one of them is "irrational exuberance." Go figure. William Shatner is not here saying "Get a life!" The New Yorker's famous "On the Internet, no one knows you're a dog" is not here. Oprah is here, but what she says is not memorable. Oh, and Alexander Pope is here. Lots of Pope. It must have taken the editors _minutes_ to copy this from other books. The strong London bias to the book is very evident. American editors were needed who wouldn't have made many of these errors. The book should be on your shelf, but it's not what it should have been.
