Would you be down in the dumps if, when asked the definition of certain phrases, it was all Greek to you? Let's not beat about the bush: the English language is littered with linguistic quirks, which, out of context, seem completely peculiar. If you can't quite cut the mustard, this book will explain how on earth 'off the cuff' came to express improvisation, why a 'gut feeling' is more intuitive than a brainwave, and who the heck is 'happy' Larry. These expressions and countless more become a piece of cake once you've read As Right as Rain - the perfect gift for any Tom, Dick or Harry with a love of language.
