About the Author

Peter Archer is an editor at Adams Media. He subscribes to the New Yorker, the Economist, and the New York Review of Books; keeps a copy of Dante’s Divine Comedy on his nightstand; and has an M.Litt. from the University of St. Andrews. Which makes him as much of a pseudointellectual as he needs to be to write this book.

I wish there were more books like this one out there! It's good to know that there are still intelligent and witty people out there like Peter Archer. There is a quote in this book for every occasion and using them in my every day life is a new favorite pastime and something to entertain and amuse friends and co-workers alike.

I recently hosted a birthday party and each table was a different theme, one was books. For favors I made 8 different bookmarks-each with at least 10 "quotes" on them. I got almost all of quotes from "Quotable Intellectual". It was great and more than fulfilled my needs. It was a wonderful resource. I recommend it to anyone who likes quotes and their sources.

I REALLY enjoyed this book. I am a person that loves to read all kinds of quotes. This book has a bunch and plenty that I haven't heard of. It's divided into topics from Marriage, Friendship, Business, Technology, Love, War, Death, Religion...etc and provides a cool amount of quotes that are then divided as being positive on the subject and then negative.

Good read and I guess it can help you sound very smart if you can memorize a few and integrate them into a normal conversation.
