Title: Wit and Wisdom
Author: Winston Churchill
Page Count/Review Word Count: 149
You know what you’re getting with something like this – a fantastic collection of the wise words of Winston Churchill, from his pre-war years to his reflections as his death approached him. It’s an inspiring read, even if you occasionally have no idea what or who he’s talking about – there are also some notable omissions, such as his legendary comeback to Bessie Braddock.
In all honesty, Churchill is a man that we can all learn a lot from, and as this is such a short read (I read it on my commute to work), there’s no excuse not for you to check it out. The great man himself sums up my feelings towards this book better than I can: “The journey has been enjoyable and well worth making – once.”
