I first saw and read this book when it was on the bookshelves of my late father who was print journalist and a stickler for correct English usage. I think that it should be mandatory for every journalist, politician and public speaker to read it over and over.
The author gave my father permission to plagiarize his work at will. "What a Word" is a must for any communicator in English.
