Review: Spinglish by Henry Beard and Christopher Cerf

An all-you-need dictionary of “spin,” with new and useful words for everyday and special occasions, by bestselling humor writers Henry Beard and Christopher Cerf.

How to succeed in business and politics and everything else without really lying. Spinglish is all about the countless elaborate ways we can say things that you’re sort of not not saying at all.

Some expressions were old, some were entirely new, like for instance the dozens of ways to say you’re fired. Spinglish is a pertinent, well-researched, and thoroughly enjoyable read. What I particularly loved is the fact some of the expressions included in Spinglish are fairly new, having appeared over the last couple of years. Fresh, funny and at times, sarcastic, the vocabulary is a definite must-buy for anyone interested in media, communications and language studies.

Overall: 5*

Release date June 2, 2015.
