Product description

Review

'Wonderfully spirited.' (Daily Mail)

'Very amusing... managing to combine mellow wisdom with an endearing rattiness. Beyond Words is among the best books of a new bloodline of non-fiction that dissects modern ails from a position of dismay or bafflement.' (The Herald)

'He talks a lot of (well-punctuated) sense.' (londonpaper)

[Praise for Lost for Words]
'Humphrys is passionate about language - and very funny too'

(Rod Liddle)

'an exquisite sensitivity to the misuse of the English language' (The Sunday Times)

'for all those who care about the English language' (Ann Widdecombe, New Statesman)

Book Description

Following his bestselling Lost for Words, the ever-popular John Humphrys takes a provocative look at the hidden attitudes that lie behind so many of our current phrases and expressions.
