In this book from the Blackboard reference series, Judy Parkinson, author of I Before E (Except After C), presents an A–Z of popular expressions, their meanings and origins. With quotations from sources and anecdotes, she explains the facts – and sometimes theories – behind every saying, including who Methuselah was, how and why people were 'sold down the river' and the Shakespearean source of 'It's all Greek to me'.
