I love quotes, especially motivational and philosophical quotes, and I am a big believer in setting, striving for, achieving, and re-setting goals. I was very excited when I discovered this book as I figured it was a 'can't miss.' Despite all the indicators pointing towards a five-star experience, this book missed the mark in a few key ways.
The positive aspects of the book were its size, and the great mix of authors/contributors of the quotes (e.g., writers, businessmen, politicians, philosophers, professional athletes, military leaders). However, the positives were overcome by the negatives. First, the introduction said there were over three hundred quotes, but I counted only two hundred ninety-seven. Next, one quote from Henrik Ibsen contained a careless misspelling ("stealing" vice "steeling"), and another quote completely got the author's/contributor's name wrong: "Frank Victor" instead of "Viktor Frankl." With these obvious inattention to detail errors, I now question the accuracy of all the other quotes. Lastly, and most importantly, too many quotes were not related to goals. While most of those non-goals-related quotes were still good, they distracted from all the other good goals-related quotes, and they belong in other quote collections.
If the author’s goal was a good, accurate collection of quotes related to goals, she came up way short. As a quote lover and collector, it pains me to give a quote book, especially one with a title that gave me such high hopes, so few stars, but, unfortunately, the author gave me no other choice.
