Reza Mashayekhi, who was born and raised in Iran but later attended the University of Michigan, collected well over two thousand idioms and expressions for his new book. He initially created this book for foreigners, such as himself, so they could understand slang and expressions that are commonly used in North America.
Even North Americans at times forget the meaning of many common expressions. Like a dictionary this detailed 402 page book answers all your questions. This is a great gift for tourists, foreign visitors and students. I loved the illustrations. Like a dictionary, this book is a keeper and should be near your desk as you are emailing or reading emails from friends. Or after conversations.
You can learn more about this book at www.englishidiomsandexpressions.com. Phrases such as – Trick or treat, Coming on strong and I most certainly am not trying to pull a fast one. Purchase the book on Amazon.
A must read.
