Review: James Geary

December 21, 2017

James Geary, who is probably the world’s most recognizable and popular expert on the aphorism, has posted a nice review of QUICK on his eponymous website. I had the opportunity to perform with Geary this spring at the first International Conference on the Aphorism in Hartford, CT.

“The idea and experience of epiphany is perhaps the best organizational principle through which to approach George’s work. His aphorisms are carefully distilled tinctures, administered with pinpoint accuracy and utmost efficacy across a wide range of issues and concerns, including the subject of epiphanies… Quick rewards readers with memorable insights and imagery, delivered with grace and precision.”
