Review

Praise for I LOVE IT WHEN YOU TALK RETRO: "At last, a genuine study of the sort of history you will actually want to know about. This book reveals the root of a large part of our culture and the way modern language has developed."--Albert Jack, author of "Red Herrings and White Elephants "and" Shaggy Dogs and Black Sheep""We love "I Love It When You Talk Retro." How modern language came to be, and how it trickles into our daily speech is a fascinating subject. Ralph Keyes has done a fine job."--Jane and Michael Stern, authors of" The Encyclopedia of Bad Taste, The Encyclopedia of Popular Culture, "and" Roadfood" "A fun, fact-packed and eminently browsable guide, which cuts the mustard, hangs a few myths out to dry, and should play in Peoria."--Henry Hitchings, author of "The Secret Life of Words" "Everyone needs this book. Younger people need it to decipher the allusions and metaphors of their elders and older people need it to remind them of the days when today's retro was cutting edge. Ralph Keyes has outdone himself with this intensely useful and highly entertaining work. ""I Love It When You Talk Retro"" is an absolute gem."--Paul Dickson, author of ""The Dickson Baseball Dictionary, Family Words, """"and "War Slang"
