KIRKUS REVIEW

I have neither belief in nor wish for a hereafter. When I die, I die. I have never believed in personal survival. An eternity of G.B.S. or anyone else is unthinkable."" This may be one of the few times one can refute the sage whose boris mots and jeux d'esprit are as astringently apt as they ever were and have been topically arranged (and cross-referenced) all the way from absolution to youth. They have been selected from his spoken and written oeuvre. Shaw also said ""Anyone who publishes a book without an index should be put to death."" We are sure this will have one and know that there is also a chronology and bibliography.
