Brewers Phrase and Fable, 17 Jan. 2011
A beautiful book crammed with 'facts' about the origin and meaning of all the fascinating sayings, idioms and magical stories one learns from being a child through to adulthood and that one repeats, without thinking of how they came about. I've had hours of enjoyment already just dipping in and out; a reference work that's an everyday read too.
