Format: Paperback
A work of art! full-color cover of German folk art and reproductions of wood blocks by Albert Durer from the Nuremberg Chronicle, 1943. It is a treasure of art and wisdom. This book is a beautiful addition to personal collections, as well as a thoughtful gift.

Examples of German proverbs:
"We hang minor thieves and tip our hats to major ones."
"Revenge is a meal that must be eaten cold."
"Death is the poor man's doctor."
"He who believes easily is easily deceived."
"Sweet song has betrayed many."
"Remorse is lust's dessert."
"Sweet wine makes sour vinegar."

I liked the way the book handled the difficult task of conveying an idea from one language to another. I wished there had been a few more proverbs entirely in German. Overall I liked the book very much.

I enjoyed this book of proverbs, but would have enjoyed some more German in the book as well as some historical, or anecdotal stories to round it out. Simple book, nicely illustrated, enjoyable.

From the sample I thought I would find proverbs IN GERMAN. Very inappropriate and a waste, I am very frustrated..

Saw this in the Epcot Gemrany pavilion, and found it here at a much better cost. It has some enjoyable parts, but nothing overly compelling
