2.0 out of 5 stars Superficial : save your money 24 Dec 2010
By GumbyGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was expecting a book that gave more information about the origin of idiomatic phrases. This book was superficial and did not give significan information about any of the idioms/phrases. I am still looking for a book that is worth the money I pay. I would like a book that discusses the origin of idioms: an **annotated** book of idiomatic phrases. When I did an Amazon search for such, this book is one that came up. Sadly, not at all true. If you know of a good book, please write a note/addendum to this review. Thank you!
