For those who appreciate Ted Kennedy already, this book is an inspiring distillation of his thoughts, feelings, public statements, policy positions, and insights about politics, life, and what's important. It is also amusing, laughter-producing at many points. For those who did not love or did not know Teddy, it's an easy-to-digest introduction. During a period when many larger treatments of this great, humble man are available due to his recent passing, particularly his final memoir, True Compass, this brief readable volume is one of the best.

The Wit and Wisdom of Ted Kennedy edited by Bill Adler and Bill Adler, Jr.

“The Wit and Wisdom of Ted Kennedy" is an inspirational collection of Ted Kennedy’s most famous quotes by category. The Adler team of Bill and Bill Jr. do a commendable job of presenting a collection that captures the essence of Ted Kennedy the man, father and politician. This 193-page collection of quotes include the following unnumbered chapters: Words of Inspiration, On Defining Moments in Our History, On the Constitution and Equal Justice Under Law, On Leadership and Courage, On the Kennedy Family and Its Legacy, A Voice for Children, Issues of Global Impact: The Environment, War, National Security, and Public Safety, Democracy and Human Rights, Economic Justice and the American Worker, Health Care: Senator Kennedy's Last Great Challenge, In Lighter Moments, and Personal Reflections.

1. A well edited collection of quotes and philosophies by an iconic political figure, Ted Kennedy.
2. Ted Kennedy’s long career and influence in public service justifies such a collection of his thoughts and philosophies.
3. The editors do a commendable job of capturing the essence of Ted Kennedy by category. Each chapter or category starts with a summary background of the category followed by quotes and thoughts and the time and place where they took place. It covers a wide spectrum of political issues and matters of life.
4. This is a wonderful book to use as a reference for speeches.
5. The style behind Kennedy’s quotes. “Kennedy's writings and speeches, we began to see a clear and consistent pattern emerge: each was imbued with a deep appreciation of history.

There are many inspiring words and a brief introduction to Teddy. It is light reading and easy to learn a little about him. It had spark my interest and my next book will probably be his Memoir: True Compass.
