Stevenson employed a graceful wit that made him stand out in the heavy oratory of the ponderous '50's. For the people who founded their righteousness in humorlessness or who failed to recognize that the weapons of wit can be used to tilt with a serious motive, he became not only suspect but feared with what must be the gas balloon's nervous anxiety in the presence of a darting pin. Mr. Adler, who has successfully separated and published the chaffery of Churchill, Kennedy and Johnson, has arranged this short book in five sections. These group materials From the Presidential campaigns, Stevenson's favorite stories, comments on politics, the United Nations ad libs and anecdotes, and the Stevensonian bon mots. Good browsing, especially for speakers in search of a peg to hang a point on. ~Kirkus review
