    From 'affluent society' to 'zero-sum game', Nigel Fountain lays bare the origins, meaning and misuse of around 150 familiar phrases. Whether explaining the technical basis of 'pushing the envelope', the business credentials of 'bottom line' or the former military efficacy of 'heads-up', the book offers cogent arguments for cleaning up our vocabulary and simply abandoning some of the worst offenders. Previously in Postscript as The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread.
