A great encyclopedia of words.

This is an excellent reference book if you are a translator.
It is a endless source of knowledge if you are curious about the origin and history of common sayings and phrases.It is unfailingly interesting and entertaining for that bored Sunday afternoon.The more you read of it the more you realize how little you knew! Every Tom, Dick and Harry (see entry p.1089) should have one!
