Part of the pleasure of this book is to reveal the provenance of the well-worn quote (or misquote)--my cup runneth over, ay, there's the rub, to err is human, the spice of life--but also to introduce some less familiar ones. Most of the quotations included are from classic sources--from the Bible, the works of Shakespeare, other poets, classical authors, Dickens (God bless us everyone, waiting for something to turn up, very humble), Charlotte Bronte (Reader, I married him) and George Bernard Shaw (who didn't actually say Youth is wasted on the young, but may have said something like it. Somewhere. No one seems to know for sure). This entertaining and informed--but not too serious--take on the wit and wisdom of the last 2000 years is ideal for modern readers who like their knowledge in tweet-sized chunks.

    More Info
    Men to Avoid in Art and Life pairs classical fine art with modern captions that epitomize the spirit of mansplaining.

    This hilarious book perfectly captures those relatable moments when a man explains to a woman a subject about which he knows considerably less than she does.

    Situations include men sharing keen insight on the female anatomy, an eloquent defense of catcalling, or offering sage advice about horseback riding to the woman who owns the horse.

    - These less qualified men of antiquity dish out mediocrity as if it's pure genius
    - For the women who have endured overbearing men over the centuries
    - Written with hilariously painful accuracy

    "Now, when you're riding a horse, you need to make sure to keep a good grip on the reins." "These are my horses."

    Through cringe-induced empathy, this timeless gift book of shared experiences unites women across history in one of the most powerful forms of resistance: laughter.

    - Started as a Twitter thread and quickly gained widespread popularity.
    - A great pick for a birthday or Galentine gift for a friend who needs a funny pick-me-up
    - Makes a perfect gift for women and feminists with a wry sense of humor, millennials, anyone who loves memes and Internet humor, as well as history and art buffs.
    - Add it to the shelf with books like Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit, Milk and Vine: Inspirational Quotes from Classic Vines by Emily Beck, and Awards For Good Boys: Tales Of Dating, Double Standards, And Doom by Shelby Lorman.
