This book is a good read and very interesting. Leo Rosten is a good writer. This book is basically a dictionary, but with lengthy entries. You can read it for relaxation, or keep as a reference book. Highly recommended

I was happy to receive this book and received it within a matter of days. However, the book was not in "good" condition based on my standards. Rather, the pages were yellow and and the book felt brittle. Nonetheless, and when I'm up to it, I'll re-order another one. In the meantime, I will certainly enjoy the contents of the one I have.
I remember this book from when I was a kid. I'm so pleased to have my own copy now. Easy and fun to read, with wonderful embellishments and stories to set the context for each word or phrase. I understand that the re-write by his daugher is nowhere near as warm, charming or authentic. Find a used copy of the original.
