From the Introduction to the American Edition: Though his readers would demand no explanation, Ivor Brown has, with growing diffidence, offered the successive volumes in this series of delightful word anthologies. But, besieged by eagerly interested correspondents who, with each book's appearance, have pressed upon him the claims for attention of still other words, he followed A Word in Your Ear with Just Another Word, and I Give You My Word with Say the Word. Still importuned, he brought forth No Idle Words and then, in an access of firm resolution, conceived the ominous title, Having the Last Word. This, with No Idle Words, forms what he bids us accept as the final pair in these double-barreled American editions of his work.--page v.
