I highly recommend this work to anyone who seeks to understand the "demeanour" of the Yoruba culture. A comprehensive collection of more than five thousand Yoruba proverbs translated literally and figuratively as seen with the Yoruba eyes.
Simply put, a narrative of the Yoruba culture and the richness thereof; would be incomplete without reference to this book. Just think: The timeless wisdom of Yoruba sages down the ages, has been made available to us for the mere price of a book.
Some proverbs in the book have a dodgy origin (not quite sure they are Yoruba originated) but they are all very interesting. Great way to learn the language.

This book is well written, the proverbs are golden, and can be very humorous too. The proverbs are written in yoruba and in english, to assist in understanding. lol Check it outPublished on August 21, 2013 by Babatunde T. Ajidele
