Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There isn't much out there, but this is a pretty good collection of sayings -- the best I've found so far -- which I've incorporated into my Arabic studies. I have found them reliable, because my teachers understand them when I use them. They are very practical and usable sayings, for the most part. I also found that they helped expand my vocabulary in a fun way. I'm not qualified to judge the quality of the selection or the translations, but they seem pretty accurate overall.

a great book, offering many insights into the Arab culture and mindset. Purchase is recommended! Many saying fit all of mankind, whereas some are distinctly fittig for the Arab culture only.
