Review

'An informative but highly entertaining journey through the figures of rhetoric ... Mark Forsyth wears his considerable knowledge lightly. He also writes beautifully.' David Marsh, Guardian 'Sparkling ... the book offers many pleasures ... I laughed out loud' Charles Moore, Daily Telegraph

Review

‘Sparkling … the book offers many pleasures … I laughed out loud at the examples chosen’ (Charles Moore Daily Telegraph)

'An informative but highly entertaining journey through the figures of rhetoric ... Mark Forsyth wears his considerable knowledge lightly. He also writes beautifully.' (David Marsh Guardian)

'It is good news that the popular author of The Etymologicon should now potter round the rhetorical warehouse at our elbow, commenting on the choicer goods on view, for he is well-informed and amusing.' (Christopher Howse The Spectator)

'The Elements of Eloquence makes a daunting, potentially boring subject exciting ... Forsyth's wickedly clever, irreverent take on rhetoric should cement his reputation as a virtuoso: it is hard to think of any other book that tackles the topic with such style.' (South China Morning Post)

'Highly entertaining, short, sharp and to the point ... all life and language is here!' (Good Book Guide)
