How one man corrected hundreds of up to date misquotations infecting the Web, our books, and our minds.

Everywhere you look, you’ll find viral quotable wisdom attributed to icons ranging from Abraham Lincoln to Mark Twain, from Cicero to Woody Allen. But more ceaselessly than not, these attributions are false.

Garson O’Toole—the Web’s foremost investigator into the dubious origins of our most repeated quotations, aphorisms, and on a regular basis sayings—collects his efforts into a first-ever encyclopedia of corrective popular history. Containing a huge amount of original research, this delightful compendium presents information prior to now unavailable to readers, writers, and scholars. It also serves as the first careful examination of what causes misquotations and how they spread across the globe.

Using the massive expansion in online databases in addition to outdated gumshoe archival digging, O’Toole provides a captivating study of our up to date abilities to find and correct misinformation. As Carl Sagan did not say, “Somewhere, something improbable is waiting to be known.”
