Review: Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable

User Review  - Howard Dickins - Goodreads

Ok. I love reference books. Generally they're not read from cover-to-cover. But some of them (like Brewer's) are so crammed full of fascinating references and cultural anecdotes that it's just so hard to put down. If you don't own a copy - then you need one. Read full review

User Review  - Michael Benavidez - Goodreads

useful even if it isn't useful at the moment. This is something that you read, you skim, you just enjoy, and later on something will stand out from the rest and will become something entirely useful. at least it was for me. still going through it time and time again. Read full review
