    • The John Wayne Code: Wit, Wisdom and Timeless Advice

      Apologies in advance if this has been covered in a separate thread. I only found one for a different book. albeit with the same title, from 2008. This one was only published last year, by the editors of the John Wayne Collector's Magazine. It is essentially a collection of photos of Wayne in private life and stills from Wayne movies with a quote either about Wayne from his contemporaries and family, or quotes by Wayne himself, and even iconic movie quotes. I found it today in a local used bookstore, but it is available on Amazon. A collector's item for true collectors. I especially liked the quotes from family members. One that stood out in particular, for me, was one from Marisa: "There was one instance on the boat where he kept telling me to pick up my room. I had clothes all over the floor. And after asking me about five times, I woke up to him throwing everything overboard. It all came down to disrespect, and in his mind it was disrespectful that I wasn't picking up after myself. That was the only time where I felt the punishment was harder on him than me."

      If only my mother had been as forceful.

      With a table of contents that lists : "Loyalty", "Self-Reliance", "Grit"., "Patriotism", "Honesty" and "Generosity", perhaps you can already think of some iconic quotes and they are all probably in here. At only 148 pages it seems a little too compact, but I swear I can't think of anything I'd add.
