Reseña del editor:

This entertaining book takes an in-depth look at hundreds of common expressions in their many forms--where they came from, what they mean, how they've evolved over time, and their prominence in today's society.
Cliches, those trite little phrases that often get a point across quickly and efficiently, have become such a familiar part of the English language and people's everyday speech. This entertaining book takes an in-depth look at hundreds of these common expressions in their many forms--where they came from, what they mean, how they've evolved over time, and their prominence in today's society. Inside you'll discover hundreds explored and explained, such as...
- "Thinking outside the box"
- "All hands on deck"
- "My way or the highway"
- "To be perfectly honest"
- Technical terms, like "collateral damage" and "pushing the envelope"
- And many others!

You'll quickly discover why this fun little compendium is truly the best thing since sliced bread!
