An informative and fun book! The author includes hundreds of Latin mottoes, sayings, bon mots, and proverbs. They are ordered alphabetically, each followed by its pronunciation (in an informal but generally useful transcription), and general sense. Most of the entries have an explanatory sentence or two, giving the background, source, and literal translation. A fun and educational book; helpful to the student of Latin, and entertaining and educational to the general reader.

All but the first 10 pages is an alphabetical listing of phrases (about 3 to for to a page) with a short definition. Would be useful if you wanted to know what "lex loci" meant, but less helpful if you wanted to know how to say "seek the truth" (aah, except there is an index at the end to refer to that will do that).
