really liked it
bookshelves: audiobook, comedy, non-fiction

This was amazing.

Granted, I'm a word nerd, but this was really paced and organized in the most charming way, while still teaching me so much about common phrases and sayings. Forsyth is really clever and witty, and erudite on top of it all.

It's a rare book that will make me chuckle and also teach me valuable and new words! Such a fan of this one.
