I love language. I love this book. It made me chuckle more then once. The author is a really gifted one. Can fully recommend the book!

Ein außerordentlich interessantes Buch über die Englische Sprache. Sehr witzig geschrieben, durch ständige Benutzung der im jeweiligen im Kapitel erklärten Stilmittel.

This guy I could have done with half a century ago in school. He has an phenomenal knowledge of English (but a little less German it seems - cats are said to have seben Leben in Germany, not sechs), and armed with this book, my grade would have gone from a C to and A, I am sure! The problem is that it is all a bit too much for a book on how to turn a phrase. This is more a reference book, a dictionary of phraseology with examples added in. Somehow it doesn't garner the interest or engender fun as The Etymologicon does. Still, I am happy that I bought it. Just not ecstatic.

I always enjoyed reading Forsyth`s books and this time was no exception. The book was entertaining, and interestingly written. Unfortunately, it was not as good as his other two books, I often missed his great humour. Normally I have to supress a laugh when reading his books on the bus, but this time there was nothing to supress. I hope the author will return to his funny style in his next books. Nevertheless, the Elements of Eloquence is recommendable and accessible by everybody.

That's what it says in the cover and what I think of this book.
It is a catalog of rhetorical and expressive resources; it helped me realize that every word trick I used already existed, it had a name, and was already used by Shakespeare 400 years ago.
Useful to avoid exaggeration in your prose (therefore reducing cheesyness) and to find your own identity as a writer.
