Review by Fliss88
Gervase Phinn has written another thoroughly readable book, full of two of his favourite things, words and phrases. English as a language is tricky, confusing, easy to get wrong, hard to understand, impossible to spell at times but never the less, it is spoken by over a billion people. Here we read about the funny ways we all get it wrong at times, whether that's by mistakes in our spelling, our pronunciation, our punctuation or our choice of words and phrases. I laughed out loud at times and will be re-reading this just as soon as I get my own copy, it's a terrific book!
