Watson's dictionary of weasel words, contemporary clichés, cant & management jargon

Front Cover
Knopf, 2004 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 357 pages
0 Reviews
A much-requested companion volume to DEATH SENTENCE and appealing to the same market. A book for people who really want to know what a 'six step reframe' and 'ratchet compulsion blow-out' are, and for those who want to mock the very idea. A useful handbook and guide to modern managerial language, newspeak, and linguistic political chicanery; and also an essential reference for victims and saboteurs. A book, like Death Sentence, both serious and amusing - in fact more serious and more amusing. Sludge-mongers, weasels, fog-merchants and charlatans beware: Don Watson is back to take a blowtorch to the bellies of those whose words kill meaning and challenge sanity.
