Not for British Eyes Only!

The British motivational war poster that never saw the light of day until several years later: Keep Calm and Carry On, has inspired a book.  This pocket sized bookie has "buck up and get on with it" type quotes that use the British stiff upper lip to guide us through troubled times.  My personal favorite is "If at first you don't succeed, try try again.  Then quit.  There's no need to be a damn fool about it!" I think this book is a great pick-me-up to anyone having a rotten day.  I bought mine at Urban Outfitters, a great source for creative and quirky works of print.
