About this item

We use expressions all the time. When you feel sick, you're "under the weather." When you feel great, you're "on top of the world." You may be fine with "half a loaf," or you may insist on "the whole enchilada." But whether you're a "smart cookie" or a tough one, you - and almost everyone you know - have a veritable smorgasbord of expressions stored deep in your brain. So to Speak: 11,000 Expressions That'll Knock Your Socks Off is the largest collection of its kind. Thoughtfully divided into sixty-seven categories - from Animals to Food & Cooking, from Love to Politics, this is not your run-of-the-mill reference guide. Don't look for definitions and etymologies, because the book is just the beginning.
