  • Nathan Albright

    Published in 1908, and still certainly relevant nowadays, this is the sort of essay that would in our contemporary age be part of a blog series or would be distilled in an article of the Onion or some other parody news source. This particular short essay was originally published in "The Smart Set" in 1906 and was then made into a standalone volume, presumably to be read and chortled over by those who fancied themselves to be "among the illuminati (9)." It is difficult for me at least to read thi [...]

    I read "Have You an Educated Heart?" before this one and think it is a stronger book. Even so, this title is worth the hour of reading. Beautiful border art and illustrations add a great touch to the prose.

    Yes, I am a Bromide. I'm guilty on several occasions of uttering bromidioms such as "It's not so much the heat as the humidity".

    This book is the worst! I just read it because of the memorable use of the word "bromide" by Ayn Rand in her novels. I was surprised to find out out that popular culture could be just as mind-numbing in the 1920s as it is today. It is like reading an article on thoughtcatalog that someone has randomly linked to for some reason.

    It is a good read, providing the way to think that whether one is Bromide or the Sulphite.The basic difference between them is the being rational and irrational. Must read it is beautifully written.


  • Dan

    A short read. I find myself thinking about the central concept of this book from time to time. The Iowa State University library has a beautifully illustrated, and very old, copy of it.


  • Carolee Wheeler

    Clever, still timely, beautifully illustrated.


  • John

    Is this satire? an attempt to deflate inflated, doctrinaire elites? just another whining and moaning malcontent? self-loathing and self-absorbed plaintiff? too long before the bar?
