“I Fail to Miss Your Point, Jim O’Bryon’s new book is packed quotes, trivia, historical interest, inspiration and wisdom. Even the massive Index is fascinating. Speakers and writers, especially, will find this trove of treasure worth the read. Jim collected this detritus of humor and human interest over 45 years, yielding a very unusual book. You will be touched by the accidental wisdom and humor of children; surprised to learn of the American founders’ devotion to the Bible; groaning with Jim’s penchant for punny stories; laughing out loud at bumper stickers collected over four decades; and entertained by it all. This is the best book of its kind, a great gift for friends and family.” —J. Stanley Oakes PRESIDENT, THE KING’S COLLEGE, NY
