Review:

`serves an important purpose in setting the record straight about certain historical figures, Hampstead & Highgate Express

`an excellent source' Evening Advertiser

' An infectiously browsable book.' Ray Olson

' You cannot fool all the people all of the time (not Abraham Lincoln), and the authors of this carefully researched and readable treasury help to put the records as straight as they are ever likely to be. [But] sticklers for accuracy, and those who like dropping bits of useless information to liven flagging conversations, will find this a source of delight.' Manchester Evening News

' well-researched' Daily Mail

' an excellent source for those of us not well read enough to know even the misquotations' Evening Advertiser

an amusing collection of quotations' Paul Thomas, Slough, Eton & Windsor Observer

' an amusing collection of quotations' Berks & Bucks Observer

' The anthology is huge fun, but is serious enough to make us think hard too.' Bath & West Evening Chronicle

Review:

."..highly amusing romp through the history of spurious quote-mongering....Boller and George not only perform a valuable scholarly service, they also give us a first-rate detective story."--George E. Hopkins, International Social Science Review"[A] highly amusing romp through the history of spurious quote-mongering....Boller and George not only perform a valuable scholarly service, they also give us a first-rate detective story."--International Social Science Review"This book full of spurious quotes and deliberate misattributions has a lesson for anyone who has ever nodded admiringly at a well-turned quotation that makes a partisan point with stunning effect. The lesson is to be wary of just such marvelous distillations of political wisdom. They're probably fakes....This is...a serious book, written with high good humor and solid research."--The Washington Times"An infectiously browsable book."--Booklist"One of the most pleasant surprises of the year....Not only informative but great fun."--The Newark Star-Ledger
