Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author of this handy little tome has gone to a great deal of trouble to dig up some of Jack London's most relevant and insightful sayings. London -- as an author, journalist, and essayist -- commented on just about every subject under the sun, from religion and romance to politics, science, and the future of humanity. This book is a terrific addition to any writer's library.
