I accidently read this book but now I recommend this great book to every one in my Institute and organisation and frends circle.
This book is not any great best-seller or big name in itself but it reveals the origin of a WORD,CLICHES,EXPRESSIONS that we use in our talks, without knowing its real/origin meaning and importance.
GREAT WORK,POWELL.
