Aug 13, Rosemary Standeven rated it liked it. This was an amusing book to dip in and out of, but I had a few problems with the overall presentation.
Firstly, although there are some few pages of particular themes, most of the entries are listed alphabetically, with no attempt to bring similar types of entries together.
I would have liked to have had a section on political gaffes for instance, instead of having them scattered about. Baseball player Yogi Berra and movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn both prodigious producers of idiocies do each get This was an amusing book to dip in and out of, but I had a few problems with the overall presentation. Baseball player Yogi Berra and movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn both prodigious producers of idiocies do each get their own section — though not all their quotes in this book can be found in these specific locations.
Who cares? Hopefully all of these are from a long time ago, and represent attitudes long since buried — but no dates are given. So, in conclusion: a generally funny read, but some stupidities are just so much more worrying than mere inanities.
Apr 28, Rose added it Shelves: , other-nonfiction , , print. Entertaining if not always strictly factual. I think that, had this book been written after the rise of George W, it would have been twice as long.
As it is, his dad gets quite a few entries. Foot in mouth disease - keeping it in the family. Aug 07, John Yelverton rated it really liked it. Some of these quotes in this book were so bad that it was almost painful to read, yet this book is a great way to put a quick smile on your face when you're down.
Aug 04, Carol rated it really liked it. This is a very funny book full of misstatements from people you will recognize and others you will not. One of my favorites is from, of course, Yogi Berra. Good for a laugh or to use for parties or speeches. Aug 10, Daniel Widrew rated it it was amazing. I can pretty much flip to any random page, read a couple quotes, and crack up.
Dec 28, CJ Bowen rated it liked it. Hilarious and humbling. Sir Boyle Roche and Yogi Berra were national treasures to their respective nations. Some of the quotations are only funny if you share the liberalish leanings of the compilers, but most of these utterances are indeed laughable. Dec 21, Alison rated it it was ok Shelves: humor. This book was not what I hoped it would be. While there were a few funny quotes, most of the book was just boring.
Jun 16, Jeff Guertin rated it it was ok Shelves: own. Got this book as a stocking stuffer and found it to be OK. Some of the quotes were rather hilarious, but many were also very underwhelming. Overall the book was a decent pool-side read.
Jun 12, Michael rated it it was amazing. Fundamental for me on so many levels. Sep 02, Peff Packer rated it it was amazing. Very, very funny. Jul 23, Rick added it. If people followed me around with a notepad, I am sure that I would make this book too. Sep 06, Jennifer rated it it was ok Shelves: humor , true. Reading books like this is a good way to make you feel smarter.
I have to say though, I feel like there could have been a lot more Dan Quayle quotes. He could have his own collection of quotes. All in all, enjoyable. It is one of those books that is hard to read over and over, because it is a book of quotes, and not a story.
Apr 18, Evelyn rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction. Some of these quotes were quite funny, but many were boring or not too funny. I found a lot of the political and scientific quotes to be just intelligible. Mar 18, Dedmanshootn dedmanshootn rated it it was ok. Jul 10, Dick Pilskog rated it it was ok. Forget about it. Pretty good book but the author said it was mentioned in various times I got tired of it. I only read part of the book. Gave up midway from the book.
I thought this would be funny Nov 06, Jacob O'connor rated it liked it. Not the best in the genre, but still mildly amusing. Jo Davis rated it it was ok Apr 24, Alex rated it really liked it May 30, Roberto Musa Giuliano rated it it was ok Mar 16, Jenn rated it really liked it Jul 12, Alex rated it it was ok May 01, Jacob rated it it was ok Dec 07, Dawn DuBois rated it it was amazing Apr 28, Jeremy Stephens rated it liked it Dec 29, Henrik Rostoft rated it liked it Jun 17, Nicole rated it liked it Sep 21, Danny rated it it was amazing Jan 05, There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
