In both good times and bad, business leaders should always be open to a few words of advice - especially if they come from the rich and famous or, indeed, fellow business people. The writers of this fascinating book have spent a lifetime assembling a massive collection of quotations, aphorisms and proverbs that covers a veritable A-Z of philosophy, wisdom and humour - this book delves into the huge archive to create a compilation just for the business person. The result comprises both humorous and more serious 'advice' alike. This makes for a fascinating read and much can be learned from the humorous element just as much as the more serious content. It is a source of pearls of wisdom for the after-dinner speaker or just a thoroughly pleasant and amusing read. If readers have half as much pleasure as the compilers had during the book's assembly, then the writers' mission will have been accomplished. The collection is organised into many identifiable chapters and these chapters are referred to in the index of authors, some of whom are or have been in business themselves and so speak from experience - bitter or otherwise! Many of the contributors have known both good times and bad.
