[Promo] - The Wit & Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister by George R.R. Martin

"Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you."
- Tyrion Lannister, A Game of Thrones

The Wit & Wisdom of
Tyrion Lannister

By George R.R. Martin

Release date: October 29, 2013

The perfect gift for fans of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels and HBO’s Game of Thrones: a collection of wicked one-liners from the incomparable Imp of Casterly Rock, fully illustrated by Jonty Clark!

“My mind is my weapon. My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer, and I have my mind . . . and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge.”

The jealous masses of the Seven Kingdoms may call him Halfman, but none have ever accused Tyrion Lannister of being a halfwit. His golden tongue has saved his skin slightly more often than it has landed him in mortal peril. Now, this special illustrated volume preserves his most essential knowledge for future generations, featuring time-tested guidance on such varied subjects as . . .

 The art of persuasion
“The best lies are seasoned with a bit of truth.”

Fine dining
“A little honest loathing can be refreshing, like a tart wine after too much sweet.”

The fair sex
“The young ones smell much better, but the old ones know more tricks.”

Royal politics
“Crowns do queer things to the heads beneath them.”

Common ailments
“A sword through the bowels. A sure cure for constipation.”
