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 is a small book that speaks volumes.
