Description

Have you ever woken up on the wrong side of the bed? Did you make it to that early morning meeting by the skin of your teeth? Was your heart in the right place when you proposed that idea, even though you couldn't hold a candle to the guy next to you who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth? If you've ever wondered what that word or phrase you just heard means, "What's in a Word?" is just the book for you. If you love words, this fascinating and humorous encyclopedia of more than three hundred fifty words and phrases and how they evolved will keep you entertained for hours.
