Dec 3, 2009 CAZENOVIA, N.Y – Consumers across the United States are seeking prudent words and guidance as they face foreclosure, layoffs and other financial and personal crises. In his debut book release, “Snappy Sayings: Wit & Wisdom from the World’s Greatest Minds”, Bradford Wheler compiles some of the most poignant quotes on money, work, love, happiness and other topics weighing on the minds of most Americans. At a time in our nation when uncertainty is high and confidence is low, keen insight and sound advice are invaluable. “Snappy Sayings” delivers words of wisdom that despite the date of their origin still remain relevant and useful to today’s readers.
From Martin Luther to Johnny Carson, "SNAPPY SAYINGS" showcases some of the most memorable quotes in history while paying homage to some of the most celebrated entertainers, artists, writers, politicians, business leaders and other public figures. The book features quotes that tackle 22 different subjects, all organized by chapter, and is filled with sage advice, profound observations, poetic sentiments and classic humor. Readers will find the book’s quotes about money, work, professions and politicians to be particularly relevant and timely.
“The author has taken the hard task of culling and selecting from a world of infinite possibilities and combinations, much like a master distiller must carefully select and blend his ingredients to offer up a sensation both pleasant and stimulating,” said Jay Walker, founder of Priceline.com in his foreword. “His goal is simple. If successful, we might sit back and simply enjoy the sensation of a thought that has stood the test of time.”
In addition to more than 750 quotes, the book is filled with hundreds of photographs and illustrations. Readers can learn more about the public figures quoted in the book by reviewing the book’s appendix, which contains biographies of each figure quoted. “Snappy Sayings” is a fun coffee table book, ideal for readers of all ages who enjoy humor, human nature and history. It’s a must-have collection for any household library.
“Bradford Wheler’s Snappy Sayings is a useful treasure trove of entertaining and insightful quotations drawn from an extraordinarily wide range of history’s most notable thinkers and personalities,” said Dr. Mark J. Tierno, president of Cazenovia College. “I recommend Mr. Wheler’s volume to public speakers who often need witty sayings for their speeches and to anyone who just wants a really good laugh.”
“Snappy Sayings” is a BookCollaborative.com publication, and will be available May 1. The book includes words of wisdom from many of America’s famous fathers, including Bill Cosby and Albert Einstein, the father of modern science, making it the perfect Father’s Day gift.
