Product Description

Publisher: Michael O'Mara Books

Author: compiled by Dominique Enright

A celebration of the boundless humor, intellect, and eloquence of one of the greatest Englishmen in history "Politics are almost as exciting as war, and quite as dangerous. In war you can only be killed once, but in politics many times." Winston Churchill was the greatest orator of his day, the greatest statesman of his age, and the greatest Englishman of the 20th century. This enchanting collection gathers hundreds of his funniest and wickedest quips in tribute to the exhilarating wit of this great-hearted, infuriatingly conceited, wildly funny, and brilliantly talented Englishman. Accessibly and thematically organized, this collection is perfect to dip into at the reader's whim. (hb)
