This review is from: Dictionary of Proverbs: And Their Origins (Paperback)
Originally gifted to me by a young female relative who exprssed enthusiasm so I obliged by purchasing a copy for her in return. The book provides a handy reference of all the most common sayings and avoids the necessity to have to 'google' or otherwise search for meanings behind proverbs. While many proverbs are self-evident , there are others where the source is more puzzling and this volume provides a swift solution to the problem. An amusing read even as a 'coffee table' book.
