Lots of interesting and thoughtful sayings but there is no organization to the book. If you are looking for a saying to use, it is very hard to fine one about a particular topic. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 076111730X, Paperback)

8,789 Words Of Wisdom is brimming with great advice, maxims, sayings and saws, proverbs, precepts and truths-8,789 of them, to be exact. Turn to any spot in the book and there is the secret to living a happier, healthier, saner, more productive life. Learn to unlearn. Appreciate the questions as much as the answers. Stretch beyond what is comfortable. There are folksy expressions polished smooth over time: If you think you can, you can. Experience is the best teacher. Quotes: Those who know don't speak, those who speak don't know (Lao-tzu). Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there (Will Rogers). Unexpected turns: Listen with your eyes. Good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment. Taken together it's the ultimate source of self-improvement.
