The wisdom and belief systems we all carry within us but seldom realize are there, form the core values of Bud Carters new edition of “Pithy Quotes”. It is a real wake up for all of us, and I advise that we all read it on a daily basis, a few pages at a time. I must warn you though, it can change your life, and leave you with a smile on your face!

I have had the opportunity to work with Bud Carter on a number of occasions. One of the quotes that is my favorite, is credited to Yogi Berra, the Baseball Hall of Fame catcher of the New York Yankees. Yogi said, “You can observe a lot if you just watch”. I believe that is a trait that describes my friend Bud Carter. He has “paid attention, and watched” in a persistent manner in his career as a management mentor. His book of collected quotes is a treasure!

Bud Carter has been a kindred spirit of mine for nearly 20 years, and not just because he has an uncanny ability to pick out the snippet of a speaker’s presentation that delivers more than the sum of the words. As a professional speaker, I know that insightful, motivating and yes, even humorous, quotes are necessary now more than ever in the business world. Bud’s collection arms all of us with just the right thought, no matter what the challenge.

Every speaker, writer, executive or manager sometimes badly needs just the right quote for just the right moment to make just the right point. Bud Carter’s discerning taste and his reporter’s natural ear for the great sound bite, he had the foresight to develop the habit of capturing the, often spontaneously, statements of fact, wisdom, humor or inspiration of so many of this world’s best speakers. Bud’s past editions are never far from my writing desk.”

Those of us in the newspaper business know that for the sake of credibility there is nothing better than a direct quote. Printing the newsmaker’s exact words and leaving interpretation up to the reader.

And that’s what Bud Carter has been doing for more than 20 years: copying down direct quotes (“salient snippets” he calls them) and then sharing them via his book with his CEO members and 15,000 other business leaders around the world.

From the more obvious sources, Jack Welch, Ray Kroc and W. Edwards Deming, to those who you might not expect to have wisdom to share with the business world: Willie Shoemaker, Vince Lombardi and Mike Tyson – it’s all sage counsel and a bargain at that.”.

Bud Carter’s volume VII release of Pithy Quotes is the perfect medicine for business leaders trying to get their messages poignant in this challenging economy.

“Pithy” is perhaps an understatement because each quote from well and not-so-well known sources is carefully selected to leave an everlasting “jolting” impact on the reader or listener, as the case may be. Well indexed quotes can be quickly located for every business subject imaginable.

This collection is a great tool for company newsletters, social media disseminations, and live presentations to any business group. There is no comparable alternative!

I have always enjoyed great quotes and found them to be of great value through out my entire career. As a public speaker I find they really help deliver a message to an audience. Bud Carter’s “Pithy Quotes” is far and away the best collection of great quotes I have ever found in a single volume. If, like me, you are a “quote junky” this is the one book to have.

If there’s a person on the planet who loves quotations as much as me, it just might be Bud Carter. And if you count yourself among the quotation lovers of the world, you will surely be impressed with–and often inspired by–his collection of pithy quotes. You don’t have to be a business person to enjoy them, but you will especially appreciate them if you are.
