A number of humorous illustrations and some interesting expressions and proverbs from other languages and cultures have also been included.

Although initially written with foreigners in mind, it is now a useful and fun collection for anyone who speaks English, and will be referred to for many years to come. It’s a great gift for a friend, or a fitting addition to your coffee table or office waiting room.


Below are some of the reviews:

In one stop, your book has clarified the definition of many expressions I hear regularly, yet wasn't sure of their real meaning . I found the background and origin information to be very informative, clever, and, at times, very funny! It doesn't matter if you are "One taco short of a combination plate" or a "One-trick pony," you will enjoy this book!

This is a great book to keep in your home, office, or brief case. The descriptions are brief and easy-to-understand, and I wish my Japanese mother had had a copy of it when she was raising me! It is a perfect choice for a gift for people who love to learn idioms.

I expect that your readers will benefit greatly by learning the true meaning behind so many common expressions we take for granted... I hope many readers with English as their primary language will take seriously the importance of clarity in thought and speech... Congratulations upon completing a most daunting task, and thank you for allowing me to add my comments.

I would imagine this would make a great reference book for individuals who are not as familiar with common phrases. It could also make a good reference for a writer. I found the cartoons to be entertaining and the book to be quite thorough. I do often wonder where certain phrases come from so I would have liked to see more background explanations for the phrases in the book. Other than that, I think this book can be a valuable resource.
