Review:- Helen EXLEY – “Wisdom for our Times”

Year Published: - 1999
Where the book was from:- Jo’s (a gift from me)
ISBN: - 1-86187-514-2
Pages: - 138pp
Genre: - Non-fiction - Quotations, words of wisdom.
Location:- -
How I came across it: - Serendipity
Rating: - ***** ****

One sentence summary:- A delightful giftbook – each quotation having a beautiful picture accompanying it.

General comments:- It would have got ten stars but for one thing: the illustrations are listed at the back by page number but the pages themselves are not numbered. You therefore have to find an illustration you know and work forwards / backwards to identify any particular picture.

AUTHOR Notes:- Helen Exley has selected and arranged a number of similar gift books. See Our average book, since we began over 3o years ago has sold over 150,000 copies. Four of our titles have sold over a million books and over fifty of our titles have sold over half a million copies. These numbers are important to us, because the whole raison d'etre of our business is to make a change in as many people's lives as we can. "My aim is to help families communicate, to find the words which they can use to express their love for those who are close to them", says Helen Exley. Very often the message of the books is simply, "I love You, and "Thank you for all that you are and have given to me."
