Review

“[T]he proverbs are . . . definitely intriguing. Some are unashamedly baffling, while others are side-splittingly hilarious. Many . . . contain a nugget of wisdom . . . depending how hard you look.”  —Middleton and North Manchester Guardian

“[This] beautifully produced little book is the perfect gift for that someone that everyone knows who literally has everything.” —East Antrim Advertiser
