Very interesting read, but I expected it to be more complete.
Without the drawings and the long chapter introductions, this book would have been a laughably brief dictionary.

Bought this as a colleague's "Secret Santa", and realised it was so good I bought one for myself. Not just the reference book it appears to be, it is actually very absorbing ! Loads of cultural as well as linguistic information from around the globe.

This book is funny. The sort of volume you want to dip into for a few chapters and then come back to later. My one reservation is that the title is not strictly correct. Whilst the phrases chosen are not literally translatable word for word, the meaning of many are widely known and understood or can be inferred from the literal translation.
