Beschreibung

The 600 new words included in this are just as outlandish (and useful ) as the 500 in the previous volume. Regrettably, there are people out there who will want to buy this book for the worst possible reasons -- to inflate their self-esteem, to humiliate their friends and relatives, to complete their collection of Bowleriana"= dustwrap. 154 pages, biblio. All of our books are in the shop, and are 'real' books. We try to post the same day as the order. Descriptions are conservative. Postage rates may be lower than ABE estimate, please use Ask Bookseller a Question to confirm availability and postage cost, use [Ask Bookseller a Question] option below to confirm availability and get accurate postage quote for this item (the amount quoted is for an 'average' hard-cover book of up to 1kg in weight).

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

'Words are not only tools; they are also weapons' The secret to being a truly Superior Person is to use really superior words. More impressive than a top hat, much more effective than a fist-fight, here are five hundred words to help you wiggle out of sticky debates, deal with obnoxious dinner guests and fill in sick leave application forms with panache. Impress your friends, amaze your colleagues and baffle your enemies with this witty, charming, and clever little book.

From the Publisher:

Are you an Anglophile? (Stout fellow!) Just stand at this springboard and leave the fields of popinjay jabber and tongue-stumped battology behind forever! Stop up for big dividends in the giddy heights of superior speech. Peter Bowler will teach you the practical riches of saying it well with good words, neglected words, and precise words for vocabular exultation!
