The Little Book of Misquotations : The Fakest of Fake Quotes, False Attributions, and Flat-Out Lies
by Lou Harry


Overview - Motivational quote books abound, but where are the volumes of misquotations? In this era of fake news and fake quotes, The Little Book of Misquotations uncovers the truth behind the 200+ most famous things they never said

Just because a quote is engraved in marble, stenciled on your mom's wall, or repeated a million times online doesn't exactly mean that it is correct. It's time to set the record straight. The Little Book of Misquotations is the definitive collection of the quotes people frequently get wrong, including:

"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness." -- Audrey Hepburn (Somebody else said it )
"I want to suck your blood." -- Dracula (Nope He said, "I only drink...wine.")
"Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable." -- Banksy (He wasn't the first person to say it )
"A penny saved is a penny earned." -- Ben Franklin (That's not what he said )

With deep dives on popular yet erroneous quotations from artists, writers, celebrities, scientists, politicians, and legendary figures from around the globe, The Little Book of Misquotations offers addictive reading--and a delightful reminder not to believe everything you read
