From Library Journal
Compiled and edited by the brothers Safir(e), this sequel to their Good Advice ( LJ 6/1/82) is not merely a collection of quotations; as the preface notes, ". . . we specialize in the imperative mood, with direction explicit." The work is arranged alphabetically by topic, with references to related headings; sources range from the Talmud through Shakespeare, Thoreau, and Colette to Business Week and Grace Slick. The selection of both topics and individual quotations is the key to the book's quality: Estee Lauder and Marlene Dietrich comment on allure, Cicero and George Burns advise the elderly, and Winston Churchill and Napoleon appear under the heading peace. This easy-to-use collection should have wide appeal to everyone from browsers to writers looking for mots justes .- Stephen H. Cape, Indiana Univ. Lib., Bloomington
