Customer Review

on 18 November 2012
I downloaded this on my kindle and couldn't put it down , as well as covering phrases that we use in conversation, the book also covers the meaning of nursery rhymes , origin of words, popular urban myths and mysteries.

My complaints with the book (which is why I gave it a four star rating rather than five) , are that there are typing errors throughout the book such as 'the the' and some of the information from the phrases portion of the book is repeated in the words portion of the book, which although they are connected makes the reader feel that the author sees them as stupid to not make the connection themselves. Plus it is boring to have to read the same information twice.

Overall though , I would recommend downloading this book as there are some quite entertaining facts in there, and considering that it is free (as is the second book) , the typing errors and mistakes can be forgiven and overlooked.
