The Wit and Wisdom of G. K. Chesterton

I received of copy of The Quotable Chesterton by Kevin Belmonte from booksneeze.com to review without any compensation.

I honestly like Chesterton, along with CS Lewis, George MacDonald, and others.  This book is a lovely collection of 'snacks' by Chesterton arranged by category in alphabetical order.  topics include everything from adventure to cheese to jingoism to zola and almost everything in between.  This is not a book designed to be read in a single sitting like a novel, but instead to be taken in small doses or used as a reference when looking for a quote on a particular topic.  The author has done an excellent job of scouring Chesterton's works to find these little morsels for others to use in a very easy to use format.  This book is a welcome addition to my library.
