From the Beard Books Press Release:
Twenty-five years ago, after a fruitless and frustrating effort to find easy-to-use resources to emphasize a point or introduce a topic, Zera began to jot down notes from books, magazines and newspapers he read, speeches he heard, and e-mails he received. His friends and professional associates also sent him quips and anecdotes too. Now, in Business Wit and Wisdom, Zera shares his collection with others. He explains, "I thought it would be a waste of my years of collecting to just hoard everything for myself and figured that my book would save other public speakers hours of work. I think that business people, attorneys, church leaders, heads of civic organization, teachers -- anyone who makes presentations and delivers speeches -- will find my book of value. I also imagine that the general public may enjoy Business Wit and Wisdom since many of its quotes, quips and stories are thought-provoking, funny, or poignant."
Zera is Vice President for Information Technology at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. He has also worked for several major corporations, been a university administrator, and run his own consulting firm, which specialized in seminars on human relations, management, and data processing. Zera is a frequent speaker at seminars, conferences and conventions and the author of numerous articles for professional conferences and magazines.
The perfect resource for anyone who wants to use just the right quote, quip or anecdote to make a point. Business Wit and Wisdom covers nearly 200 different categories of topics ranging from ambition, anger and atheism, to wisdom, work, women, and youth.
A compendium of sayings, quips, and wise insights related to the business world.
