To understand a people acquaint yourself with their proverbs' runs an Arab adage. These highly popular books are the first of a series paralleling age-old Arabic adages with age-old English adages. For example, Like father, like son and Jam tomorrow. The similarities of inherited wisdom, presented in the adages of two cultures, is uncanny. These collections of popular wisdom wittily illustrated by the cartoonist Kathryn Lamb are books to browse through, smile at and learn from. Each book contains over 100 proverbs from all over the Arab world. Primrose Arnander and Ashkhain Skipwith are both formerly resident in the Middle East.

Review:

'Some proverbs may puzzle you, some strike you as wise and witty. All should set you thinking and talking.' --Sir James Craig
