Жанр: Penguin Group

Издатель: Penguin Group



Are you a 'bobo' or a 'wombat'? Are you tempted by 'infobia' or to 'kick dead whales up the beach'? If your answer to any of these questions is 'What are you talking about?', then you definitely need a copy of Shoot the Puppy. Amusing, informative and newly updated for 2007, it guides the reader through the ever-growing heap of contemporary jargon from around the English-speaking world, showing where it comes from, what it means, and what it tells us about our contemporary world.
