    Citations Quite literally the most enjoyable volume it is possible to imagine. Every page is a marvel * Spectator * Addictive, like dipping into a bag of variously tempting assorted candies, knowing that the next one will always bring surprise and pleasure * New Yorker * A gloriously presented compilation * Financial Times * The literary equivalent of a box of chocolates - bite-sized and pure addictive pleasure ... The result is beautifully produced, with photographs and colour facsimiles of much of the correspondence. A gorgeous Christmas present * The Sunday Times * It is hard to see how Letters Of Note could ever be surpassed * Mail on Sunday * Funny, tragic, brilliantly incisive, historic, lyrical, romantic and studiedly offensive, this stupendous compendium of letters ancient and modern is my book of the year. You will never tire of it -- Stephen Fry It is inspiring, and often sad, funny, and occasionally quite surreal * GQ * A wonderful collection of magical missives ... It'll have you reaching for pen and paper * Evening Standard * As a guide to letters that deserve a wider readership, Usher's compilation is hard to beat * Scotland on Sunday * A truly extraordinary reading experience * Big Issue * The volume is so well-produced it could become an heirloom, passed down through generations * Huffington Post * Witty, tragic, educational, inspirational * The List * This wonderful volume features letters for the great and the good, including Mick Jagger, Roald Dahl - and the Queen, with her personal recipe for drop scones! Some are witty, some are wicked and others will move you to tears * Bella *
