Product description

Product Description

ʻA book is a mirror; if an ape looks into it, an apostle is hardly likely to look out.’ –G. C. Lichtenberg

‘The desire to go into politics is usually indicative of some sort of personality disorder, and it is precisely those who want power most that should be kept furthest from it.’ –Arthur Koestler

‘Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.’ –Thoreau

In this wonderfully entertaining collection of quotations, Simon Leys gathers insights and bons mots from a motley group of great artists, wits and thinkers. Topics range from ambition and adventure to youth, sex, time, toads, wine, faith and friendship.

Wise, witty and delightfully unpredictable, Other People’s Thoughts is for anyone who has ever rifled through a friend’s bookshelves or snuck a peak over a reading stranger’s shoulder. In this wide-ranging miscellany, we are given free rein to explore the nooks and crannies of one man’s mental library. By turns profound, whimsical and subversive, the result is a book-lover’s delight.

2.0 out of 5 stars Like so many Kindled products, this is full of mistakes and is ugly to read. Don't buy it. 22 September 2013
By Reed Woodhouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The book itself is terrific, or at least I suspect it is -- I've read The Hall of Uselessness -- but the reproduction of books in this format is disgustingly slovenly.
