Salty Dog Talk: The Nautical Origins of Everyday Expressions

A great little book by Bill Beavis that explains many of the nautical terms in common use, and many that have crept into everyday language.Maybe not something that you will re-read frequently but an excellent reference book or gift for anyone into boats.
