From the huge response to Lost for Words, it's clear that many of us share John's strong feelings about the use and misuse of the English language. Not because we want to split hairs (or infinitives), but because how we use words reveals so much about the way we see the world.

Here John takes a sharp look at phrases and expressions in current use to expose the often hidden attitudes that lie behind them - from the schoolroom to the boardroom, from Westminster to the weather forecast. Questioning our assumptions, puncturing our illusions, and illuminating the way we live now, Beyond Words speaks volumes. Download and start listening now!

    " 3rd edition is smaller, lighter, and has more explicit writing instruction: an actual improvement. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Andrew (Ace) | 4/4/2010

    " An entertaining listen, showing his witty side - although in the second half, he does tend to stray into "Grumpy Old Men" territory! :-) "
