Reviews - What do customers think about The International Thesaurus of Quotations: Revised Editon?
Writers tend to buy it after using it once; superb resource. Nov 9, 2000
Since another reviewer described this book so well, suffice it to say that if you frequently use quotes in your writing or research, this will be a gold mine. Highly recommend. However, I've only used the 1970 version - am looking forward to seeing what new quotes await in the updated version.
One of the Best General, Subject-organized Quotation Books Oct 31, 2000
There are two kinds of quotation books-- those organized by alphabetically by subject and those organized by alphabetically or Chronologically by Author.
This is one of the best of the subject organized ones, with loads of subject headings (some Quote books only offer 100 or a few hundred. This one is much better and also offers suggestions for other related headings.) I've found the quality of the quotes to be excellent, with a nice mix of contemporary and classic sources.
As an avid quotation and quotation book collector, with over 400 books, some dating back over 400 years, (as well as a website of 1000-- a small fraction of the quotations I've collected) I have to say that this is one I keep handy, along with about 15 or 20 others. If you are a writer, speaker, teacher, etc., or if you are looking for a gift for someone who loves ideas, then this book is a very worthwhile investment.
One useful way to enjoy this book is to read specific topics to get an idea how a lot of different people think about that subject. This can often give you a first introduction to a writer you may want to get to know better. Then, you'll want to, perhaps, next look at a quotation book organized by author, or-- go directly to the works of the author.
NOt nearly as good as bartlets Aug 21, 2000
This book has a bad index, unuseful quotes, and is to expensive. I would only recomend this to somone who is stupid and wants to waste their money.
