The research that has gone into this Dictionary style book must have taken ages.True dedication.

A book to dip into for truly erudite knowledge and something is learned with every small exploration. A very useful book if you do a lot of writing whether as a writer or just a manic email-writer! - So many useful insights into how best to use a phrases and words normally misused and abused actively or passively.
Bill Bryson is one of the most enjoyable writers of our time. I try never to miss a new publication by him - but I appreciate he can't give up his whole life to writing books - so output is slowing down now. This one is a bonus for sure.. A very handy book that I will be consulting for a long time to come I hope.
