Whilst we might choose our words carefully, we rarely think about the origins behind the many phrases, place names and expressions we use every day. Yet, behind these words lies a fascinating story, steeped in the weird and wonderful history and traditions of every day life. From hundreds of commonplace and more quirky terms, to names of streets and cities, this fascinating and fun book anwers the questions you've always wondered about the wondeful language we all use, yet seldom think about. So if it is all Greek to you and seems like hocus pocus, for Pete's sake don't be left on tenderhooks, have a gander at this idiosyncratic tome. Make no bones about it - it's the bee's knees!
