5.0 out of 5 stars Idioms are the spice of life. 20 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book was smaller than i expected, it could almost be regarded as "pocket sized" but came with a nice plastic jacket. But you cannot judge a book by its cover (!groan!) This book is very inforative and useful particularly to students at A-level and beyond, examiners like idiomatic phrases (so ive been told) There are clear illustrations of each feature word/expression, with a very useful index in the back of both english to german and german to english. It also contains a section on abbreviations and their oppposite language equivalent. I would recommend this book as a good investment, they are hard if not almost impossible to come by in high street book shops and are harldy found in town libraries.

1.0 out of 5 stars A translator's view 26 Oct 2007
Format:Paperback
As a professional translator,I bought this book in the hope that it would provide assistance with the more esoteric German idioms. I was sadly disappointed. The book scarcely goes beyond tourist phrase books. If you want idiom coverage, the best option is still to buy a decent dictionary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for its purpose 1 Feb 2011
By David
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Every language has its own idioms and metaphors, which shape the character of the language (possibly of its speakers too?) and make it more vivid. As with the other books in this short series, you won't learn the elements of the language itself from this little book but it will help you pick up some conversational or literary references that you might otherwise miss. It's easy to slip into a pocket and good fun to dip into - in my case, as a distraction when waiting for the dentist! - and it won't break the bank. I have noticed a few misprints but overall it's excellent for its purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful tool! 19 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
However, it did not include: "Erwaehnen Sie den Krieg nicht!" ("Don't mention the war!) An absolute must, if one wishes to be diplomatic!
