Clichés, 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!
