Metaphors, as explained by Lakoff & Johnson, can obviously leverage greater power and effectiveness in the written or spoken word. This book demands your attention and rewards you for it. And, although the subject is not always easy to fully grasp, it appears to be more than adequately researched. Plenty of examples are given with each topic - however I had to re-read some sections for added clarity. Understanding our common usage of metaphors, and their variability in applications, provides a deeper insight into intelligence and how it expands. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in language and the brain's secrets.

I havent read it and want to because I used alot of such arguments that are mention the book addresses in my term paper for an arts class. It just makes me happy that when I learn my own ideas have been thought of and proven. I want to read this book.
