CD-ROM Today, March 1996
"Like the book, the CD-ROM has 22,000 remarkable quotes that range from ancient texts (such as Anacharsis' powerful, 'In Greece wise men speak and fools decide,') to modern jibes (such as Casey Stengel's immortal, 'Most people my age are dead')."
"With the CD-ROM version, you can perform elaborate searches based on topic, author, keyword, source, and media. If you remember that one of Shakespeare's characters said something about exchanging his kindowm for a horse, you could search for 'Shakespeare,' 'kingdom,' or 'horse,' and quickly pin down the quote."
"On the downside, the program's interface is a bit clunky...Most of us won't mind these minor quirks, we'll have fun browsing for gems of wisdom and humor. As Winston Churchill said of his own Bartlett's, 'I studied it intently.' He also said, 'Nothing in life is so exhilarating as to be shot at without result.' See how much fun great quotations can be?"
