I bought Richard Wilson's last two books, and they were very funny indeed. This is the best though - great for language lovers. I laughed out of my nose at least a dozen times. Absolutely recommended!

Format: Hardcover
I have at least two good friends who, when asked how they are, routinely reply:
"I`m good". They are still my friends, but only because they possess other qualities less likely to set my teeth on edge. Another chum of mine would pepper her texts to me with the highly irritating LOL, until I begged her to desist. My ears are regularly assaulted by the recent linguistic aberration "I`m loving..." and I am continually surprised that I`m still at liberty, rather than banged up for (surely justifiable) homicide after one or more of these offences to both the English language and my sensibilities.
This is a book I`ve been waiting for all this century. Richard Wilson (the TV producer not the actor who embodies Victor Meldrew, though that would have made perfect sense) has done the English language and those of us who still retain a passing acquaintance with it - and who deplore, as he does, the inroads made into its versatile efficacy by buzz-words, vapid slang and ungrammatical abortions such as the all-too ubiquitous "like", "Can I get...?" and "On trend" - a great service.
That he has also written such a laugh-aloud funny book that insults all the right people, in excellent English, with righteous aplomb and a bracingly devil-may-care, unequivocal, barely restrained fury, is all the more cause for dancing in the streets.
There are 101 brief segments to the book (they are hardly chapters) each titled after the word, phrase or term the usage or misusage of which he then proceeds to demolish. There are even - oh joy - two pages devoted to `Anything Kathy Lette Says`. So it isn`t only me! I`ll leave you to discover the sheer facetious awfulness of what she says for yourself, but you won`t be disappointed.

This is a great little book. As an older person who objects to most Americanisms that are creeping into the English language, it says the sort of things I have been thinking, but have lacked the skill to put down on paper. A real page turner... Sorry, a book that is difficult to put down once you have started to read it.

Very witty and intelligent comments, poking fun nonsense business speak.
Reading this will make meetings at work more bearable as I can now titter to myself when these annoying phrases are mentioned!
