The book is what I thought it would be. I will be able to use it from time to time when I prepare sermons or speeches. It will be used.

Format: Paperback
In preparing for the event of speaking to others, it is appropriate to people one's ideas with concrete illustrations. While our ideas may be our own, our communication is a shread event. A tool such as this book helps us get beyond ourselves into the mind of others. At least, we know when we pick an illustration that two people like it - me and the author.

The title promises quotes, illustrations, and humorous stories for preachers, teachers, and writers. What you're NOT told is that the contents are ONLY for those wanting strong religious material. I would not recommend this book for anyone except a conservative Christian minister. I'm a minister of a more liberal faith, and I am unable to use most of the material.
