Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Tact is the ability to describe others as they see themselves." Rather than the dour soul he sometimes appeared to be, Abraham Lincoln enjoyed a fine, often barbed sense of humor as this lively collection of his salty stories, anecdotes, quotes and speech excerpts proves. Also included in this treasury are his famous addresses, a Lincoln time-line, and sections on Lincoln Lore, Gettysburg Gems and Assassination Secrets. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Alex Ayres, former editor at Running Times and Harvard Lampoon, has edited six previous Wit and Wisdom titles. He is also the author of the screenplays for "Marlowe" and "Search for Grace." --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
