. . . but once the search is mastered, a great resource for speech writing and presentations. Particularly like the variety and the division of quotes into categories--Proverbs and Sayings; Phrases and Quotations. Ultimate flexibility when writing because the designations help create context.

Not exactly what I expected. There is still some good information, but I was hoping to receive a book with some really good insight to American slang terms. If that's what you are looking for, this is not the book you need. It is still interesting to have for the bookshelf. I purchased it for less than $6.00, so I can't complain about that!

This is very well organized book, the quotations are arranged alphabetically by themes (life, death, love, forgiveness, the old age, past, etc.) and then arranged by index, you can look up any word, eg. Peace, peaceably, peacefully, peace-time). Unlike other quotations book I used before. Topics range this book covers are wide and have more quotations (about 5,000) more than Bartlett Quotation book I own. However this is less bulky and easier to have a reference book on the side
