I teach English and this book is a useful resource. well researched and written. The presentation is also good though at times it should stop when it has made its point and leave out a little of the extra history when it ceases to be relevant to meaning.

There's certainly a good selection of idioms in this book, but I think some of the explanations were a bit long winded.

Bought this as a christmas gift for my mum. I wasn't sure how it would go down but she absolutely loved it! Said it was one of her favorite gifts! She loves looking up where sayings come from and why. My grandparents loved it to so may be buying it for them too!
