Good definitions, weak examples of use
I bought this book hoping it would give a historical perspective on American idioms. It doesn't really do that. It appears to be fairly complete in the scope of idioms covered, but the examples given to illustrate the typical use of the idioms are awful. They are so awkward, they sound like they were either written by the Coneheads or by someone who speaks Japanese and then translated into English.Was this review helpful?
