Geary’s Guide to the World’s Great Aphorists

I asked my wife for this book for Christmas because I have thoroughly enjoyed several other books by James Geary. Tonight I am starting it with my wife. It’s a perfect read aloud book for the two of us to share with its short entries. It starts off with Alan, Woody (Woody Allen) as the first entry in the opening section titled “Comics, Critics, and Satirists.” A perfect section to share with my witty wife.

And since I have stated my plan with such confidence, I should quote the aphorism from Woody Alan found on page nine, “Confidence is what you have before you understand the problem.”

Looks like this book will keep me humble, which is exactly what I need to keep learning in the upcoming year.
