The Wisdom of Oz: Australian Aphorisms from the Profound to the Profane, Black Inc., Melbourne, 2017

A little book about truth, in a world defined by insidious lies. The Wisdom of Oz presents the finest pearls of wisdom from Australians of all walks of life – from politicians to actors, journalists to sportspeople, bushrangers to businessmen. An aphorism worthy of its name requires truth, surprise and concision. In compiling the first Australian compendium of aphorisms, we looked not only for lasting truths, but also for a touch of self-deprecation, an admission of fallibility, an honest comment that might cost political points. The result is entertaining, witty and profound – an essential addition to any Australian library. (blurb)

The book is reviewed for Honest History by Amanda Laugesen. A review in Independent Australia from Jessica Robinson and one from Natalie Salvo on her blog.
