I got this for my husband for Father's Day. He reads western books and watches western movies all the time. He got a real kick out of this. To my surprise it has been a topic of conversation for our visitors and they get just as many laughs from it.

I purchased this book for my cousin in Texas! He loved it and wants to order some more for some of his friends in Texas. When I saw the word "cowboy" on the book, I knew it would be perfect for him... he already has wit and wisdom, so this compliments his gifting and gives place to him being an even more asset to his friends in the areas of insight and humor. Wisdom compliments with and vice-versa, so the faculty of thinking, reasoning, and acquiring and applying knowledge is a healthy mental state. Wit depicts skill in perceiving, discriminating, and judging ...good discernment. It is the quality of being laughable and comical... words and actions which provoke thought, laughter and amusement, enhancing the essence of wisdom for living life. Wisdom shows mature understanding and the ability to make sensible decisions ...that which is known, the sum of what has been discovered. Showing sound judgment is profound knowledge and scholarship and promotes learning with clever awareness and resourcefulness in practical matters. Wisdom is marked by comprehension, cognizance, and perception. This book brings out all of the qualities of wit and wisdom in a very special way, and can be used as a devotion to enhance truths which transform lives, giving an awareness in life which is helpful in knowing how to gain friends by proving one's self to be a friend in a manner which reflects wisdom used as knowledge guided by understanding ...in a nutshell this book is common sense and with sapience (mature understanding)!
