From William Wrigley's advertising maxim 'Tell them quick and tell them often,' to all-purpose words of wisdom such as E.F. Schumacher's 'Think globally, act locally,' and Yogi Berra's 'When you come to a fork in the road, take it,' the Dictionary of Business Quotations is a browser's delight, brimming with thousands of quotations for use in business speeches, reports, articles, or simply to spice conversation over lunch. Stretching from Chinese proverbs to John Maynard Keynes, from Heraclitus to Peters and Waterman, compiled from newspapers, books, movies, and poetry, this lively collection arranges more than 500 topics alphabetically, spiriting us from 'Advertising,' 'America,' and 'Avarice,' through 'Wall Street,' 'Winners,' and 'Youth.'

Review quote

`editor's of The Executive's Book of Quotations allow in a pleasantly wide range of categories, so their quotations do not stick to business, nor their sources to business people. Indeed many of the wittiest lines are by the non-executives from books and the screen'
Good Book Guide `the perfect quotes to sprinkle through your speeches' Sloan Management Review
