Synopsis of Born This Day: A Book of Birthdays and Quotations of Prominent People Through the Centuries

This thoroughly updated edition lists 12 significant people born on each day of the year, and includes a quotation from each person that allows a glimpse of their personality. For each date, a diverse dozen speakers were chosen based on prominence; the quality of the quotation; the uniqueness of the speaker with relation to gender, time period, nationality and vocation; and conflicting social, political, religious or philosophical background. In addition to those quoted, each entry lists other significant individuals born on that day.
