Witty, thought-provoking exploration of government newspeak, exaggerated advertising claims, propaganda, and other misuses of language. Not only a useful manual of verbal self-defense, but an engrossing study of the nature of language and the subtle ways in which it operates. This book will intrigue anyone interested in words, language, and the dynamics of modern culture.
