Have you ever wanted to be an intellectual, without all that tedious work of getting an advanced college degree? Hereâ€™s your shortcut to the world of the well read. Just open this collection of 1,417 quotations from the mouths of the wildly famous to the painfully obscure, and voila!--instant erudition.
It doesnâ€™t take much to sound as if you know what youâ€™re talking about. Just toss off some time-tested wisdom from Henry James or Plotinus . . . or, if youâ€™re feeling daring, a line or two of poetry from Byron. In no time at all youâ€™ll be sipping a glass of Madeira, sampling imported Gouda, and bragging about your collection of first edition Vonneguts.
Just like an intellectual.Über den Autor:
Peter Archer (Wareham, MA) is an editor at Adams Media. He subscribes to The New Yorker, The Economist, and The New York Review of Books and keeps a copy of Dante's Divine Comedy on his nightstand. Which makes him as much of a pseudointellectual as he needs to be to write this book.
