Full Description


Alex Ayres' latest volume in the acclaimed Wit and Wisdom series, "The Wit And Wisdom Of Harry S. Truman," features memorable quotations, quips, and comments by one of our most outspoken presidents. Quotations are arranged alphabetically by subject, with a brief year-by-year history of Truman's life, and the best things said about him during his presidency. Memorable sayings popularized by Harry S. Truman include: "Do what you think is right and let them all go to hell, " "It's a recession when your neighbor loses his job; it's a depression when you lose your own, " and "The buck stops here" (the sign on Truman's desk at the White House). This is the perfect book for quotation fans, history students, and anyone who experienced the Truman presidency firsthand, as well as an ideal introduction for young people to one of America's greatest presidents.
