The perfect gift for fans of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels and HBO's Game of Thrones: a collection of wicked one-liners from the incomparable Imp of Casterly Rock, fully illustrated by Jonty Clark!

"My mind is my weapon. My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer, and I have my mind . . . and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge."

The jealous masses of the Seven Kingdoms may call him Halfman, but none have ever accused Tyrion Lannister of being a halfwit. His golden tongue has saved his skin slightly more often than it has landed him in mortal peril. Now, this special illustrated volume preserves his most essential knowledge for future generations, featuring time-tested guidance on such varied subjects as . . .

The art of persuasion
"The best lies are seasoned with a bit of truth."

Fine dining
"A little honest loathing can be refreshing, like a tart wine after too much sweet."

The fair sex
"The young ones smell much better, but the old ones know more tricks."

Royal politics
"Crowns do queer things to the heads beneath them."

Common ailments
"A sword through the bowels. A sure cure for constipation."

At once charming, insightful, and ruthlessly irreverent, The Wit & Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister is short on pretense and overflowing with finely crafted gems--just like the man himself.

I love Game of Thrones and have watched all six seasons repeatedly. I've also read the novels. This is a very small collection of quotes from the books made by Tyrion Lannister, the imp/dwarf. Tyrion is a clever fellow. He's made much more profound statements than the few in this book. I literally read the entire book in less than 10 minutes and was disappointed that I wasted the time. You're better off reading a history of Westeros or the Fire and Ice series by George R. R. Martin. This was pointless.
