Reviews

"It's a fabulous book, certainly the most enjoyable one I've read this year."-Ben Yagoda, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Lingua Franca blog -- Ben Yagoda * The Chronicle of Higher Education *

"With its focus on proverbs that originated since 1900, this rich collection of 1,400 sayings drawn from newspapers, songs, and films is the first to use recently digitized sources to provide more accurate attributions. Alphabetized by keyword with information about each proverb's earliest datable appearance, origin, history, and meaning, the work is endlessly entertaining."-Library Journal * Library Journal *
Selected as a Choice Outstanding 2012 Title for Humanities within the Reference category. -- Outstanding Academic Title * Choice *
