Love these books. This one is more diverse than most and a good buy if you like the answers to questions of where sayings originated. Very swift delivery from Amazon as usual.

Bought this after seeing it for considerably more in the shops as a gift. The recipient has enthused about it ever since so very pleased.

This book is all right if you want a superficial, quick history of etymology. If you are looking, as I was, for an extensive list of idioms and expressions, then that's not it! Now I have to shop again.

Bought as a present at Christmas and am now being frequently told the meaning behind the words. She loved it.

A good range of idioms covered, but there are still some that you will know that aren't in the book!

It was a gift, so I didn't read it all, but the bits I glanced at seemed interesting and amusing.
