I’ve always been intrigued by the immense effectiveness of communication, and the elegance of the English language when short phrases are used to express thoughts. My profound interest eventually led me to start jotting down phrases. Over the course of a decade, those notes grew to dozens of pages. Then I thought, “This treasure trove is too good to keep from sharing,” so I decided to publish it. Throughout the book, these phrases appear in illustrative sentences to help readers understand their meaning. Use these phrases in your writings and conversations to standout. I hope you enjoy these gems.
