We are blessed with the greatest language on the planet. It has evolved through centuries and enriched by new application concepts throughout this period. It is rich beyond measure, remarkable in its subtleties and confounding to learn as a second language.

Today we use the world’s richest stream of idioms and sayings without thought. And half the time we don’t know what they really mean or from whence came their roots. This is a riveting little book that introduces readers to the colourful origins of modern language. A hugely rewarding read.
