Awesome

I own nearly 80 different quote books--no exaggeration--but this is one of my favorites for two reasons:1. These really are, for the most part, unfamiliar quotations. It's so nice to see something you haven't read in several other books.2. Like many of the larger books of quotations, this one has complete sources--a key attribute I always look for in quote books. The source (cite) for each quote tells not only the author or speaker, but also the title and publication or speech date.So, why only four stars? Again, two reasons:1. The book's 1500+ quotations are organized into topics. There is a helpful list of those topics at the beginning, but alas, no indexes. Looking for a particular author? You're out of luck.2. There is no recognizable order to the quotes within each topic. They are not alphabetized by author, and not chronological.Still, bravo to Wesley Camp for publishing a quote book with fresh material.

Thought-Provoking Quotations

These quotations are some of the most interesting, elusive, and meaningful ideas ever penned. The editors have found some of the best overlooked quotes and put them in this book. Bravo! Once again, this is an amazing book that everyone should read!
