"Never miss a chance to tour the nooks and crannies of the English language
with Mardy Grothe as your guide.
This new collection of specialized quotations is engrossing.
Never boring! Never a dull moment!"
Robert Byrne, compiler of 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said
"Never underestimate Mardy Grothe's ability to write
an entertaining book of quotes in a given format!
(Can he find enough quotes beginning 'never' to fill a 350-page book? Never doubt it!).
I especially appreciate the back stories—
the first appearance and history of well-known neverisms."
A. Ross Eckler, author of Making the Alphabet Dance
"Never miss the chance to read a book that's both enlightening and entertaining.
Neverisms is that kind of book.
I loved every minute of the many hours I spent wandering through
this wonderland of wit and cautionary wisdom.
Neverisms may or may not transform your life, but it will surely give you
many of the essential rules of thought and conduct for moving forward in today's world
and even for making yourself a better, more fully realized human being."
Leonard Roy Frank, editor of Random House Webster's Quotationary (1998)
"Never leave a book by Mardy Grothe unread."
Anu Garg, founder of Wordsmith.org and author of A Word A Day
"A wondrous trip through Neverland that never fails to dazzle and delight."
James Geary, author of The World in a Phrase: A Brief History of the Aphorism
"Who knew that so many fascinating, instructive,
and often witty quotations begin with 'never'?"
Dr. Mardy Grothe knew, and has gathered a superb collection of these observations.
Neverisms is not only pleasing as a compilation of quotations but
fascinating as social history and a first-rate primer on forceful self-expression."
Ralph Keyes, author of Euphemania and The Quote Verifier
"Never ever miss a chance to read a Mardy Grothe quotations book.
There's nothing negative about Neverisms.
The book positively demonstrates that learning what not to do
powerfully teaches us what we should do."
Richard Lederer, author of The Gift of Age, and many, many word and language books
