Caleb Spalding Atwood helps writers and speakers improve their communication by using quips in “The World’s First Quip Thesaurus with Literally Billions of Quips.” Atwood’s innovative thesaurus explains how writers, teachers, trainers and public speakers can enliven their commentary and communicate more successfully by embracing quips.
“It may sound preposterous, but the book literally provides billions of quips,” Atwood said. “Instead of merely listing good quips, the book gives readers the tools to build billions of quips that will enhance and enliven either their written or spoken messages.”
“The World’s First Quip Thesaurus with Literally Billions of Quips” casts aside jokes, which only seek to generate laughs, for clever quips that employ humor while powerfully expressing opinions, such as:
− Bribe: Political perk
− Charles Ponzi: Federal Reserve role model
− Gun Laws: Protection for gangsters and governments
− Peace: Calm before the norm
− Socialism: Fair and equitable distribution of poverty
− Progressive: Dyed in the bull liberal
In the course of a 50-year career in labor relations, Atwood collected and created hundreds of quips and used them to strengthen, brighten and enliven his teaching, training, public speaking and negotiating skills. After retiring, Atwood wrote the book in order to share his ever-expanding and helpful list, as well as the tools to create billons of quips, with others.
