Mark Twain's Words of Wisdom Black Traditional Leather
This collection of Mark Twain quotes presents the best of the curmudgeonly - and extremely witty - writer's thoughts on diet, exercise, medicine, smoking, drinking, romance, parenting, old age, fashion, finances, politics and stress management. Curated by a well-known Twain expert and mining lesser-known texts, speeches and notebooks; it's the perfect gift for anyone who has had enough of Gwyneth's self-righteous advice and the ramblings of the blogosphere.
