A FUNNY and useful book for language lovers! There are many grammar and usage books that give advice on correct English. This isn't one of them. The Elements of Expression targets expressiveness as a goal apart from getting it technically right. Imagine the yawns a sportscaster would induce by announcing, His bat struck the ball and the ball went into the stands, instead of He took that ball downtown! And why say, I'd prefer it if you didn't volunteer your opinions, if what you really mean is When I want your advice, I'll beat it out of you (Chuck Norris, Code of Silence)?

Written with uncommon wit and humor, The Elements of Expression offers writers, speakers, and self-improvers a fresh look at how they express (or fail to express) their thoughts and feelings. Plotnik supplies many engaging examples of adventurous language to show the tremendous power of words to describe and enliven human experience. For people who care about language and want to write or speak forcefully, effectively - in a word, expressively - this is the audiobook to turn on!

    " Nothing to fear here. This is not a grammar book, stuffed with rules and death threats for breaking those rules. Still, Plotnik lands punch after punch, waking the reader to pursue expression over mining the already stripped caverns of diatribe common in communication. "
