Neverisms is an intriguing book that is filled with interesting facts and sayings. This is a book where it is ok to flip though the different chapters and not sit and read it all the way through. In fact, at times it can read like a text book or dictionary. While I did enjoy learning different facts and tid bits about neverisms, I found myself at times flipping through the pages to read about more neverism wisdom in the form of advice. So what is neverism? Neverism is not a real word but one tha [...]

Never met a quote I didn't likeThis my second reading of a book by Mardy Grothe. The first was Ifferisms. I enjoyed this one as much as that one. Quotes are a strange subject for a book, but these were in many cases fun to read and some were ones to think about. My only complaint was some of the back stories on the quotes were over long, but that is simply a matter of individual taste. Did it hurt me to read the longer back stories, no. Did I come away a little wiser for reading them, maybe. I j [...]
I'm a sucker for quotes, and I've probably highlighted 20% of the quotes in this book. Some favorites:"Never moon a werewolf.". -Mike Binder"Never accept an evil that you can change." -Andre Gide"Never give up on anybody." -Hubert H. Humphrey"Never select a tattoo just because it's on sale."A quick read, with interesting background supplied by the author. My only nitpick is the author's habit of explaining some pretty basic (if slightly anachronistic) vocabulary. Use a footnote!
mardy grothe has written a few of these quotation books. they're a good gift or coffee table book (let's pretend it won't end up in another reading space), because they're ideal to pick up when you want a quick smile or insight. i saw the guy at quail ridge. his talk was very entertaining so he's worth seeing.
Very nice and witty book!
Very clever as are all Mardy's books!
A clever collection. And now I have to re-read it so I can list all of the great books and authors mentioned. Looking forward to the other collections by this author.
Abandoned. Preachy, wurdy and dull.
To be taken with a grain of salt, some of these quotes are rather offensive.
Nothing but entertainment. Resist the urge to copy and paste these around the office.lol.
