About this book
Subtitled, "Old-Fashioned Proverbs & Why They Still Work". From the author of "I Used To Know That" and "My Grammar & I", which sold 200,000 copies each, this examines phrases such as 'never judge a book by its cover' and 'a stitch in time saves nine'. Witty and entertaining.
Proverbs are short, well-known, pithy sayings that offer advice or words of encouragement and are used in everyday English without much thought ever being given to their meanings, or indeed, usefulness. This book explores the truth behind our favourite proverbs, their history and whether they offer any genuine help to the recipient.
