"Easy to read, but Vernon is serious and challenging too, in his look at such questions as is ignorance bliss and is love blind?" Sue Baker
"A joy to read, yielding both wisdom and delight in perfectly sized portions. A trip to the supermarket will never be the same again."
"In today's dumbed-down culture, it sometimes feels as though ideas are too readily reduced to sound-bites and aphorisms. How refreshing that Vernon turns this trend on its head and uses well known aphorisms to allow readers to think more deeply about life, love, the universe and everything."
