We asked Roget himself what he thought of Talk Wordy To Me , and he gushed that it's "incredible, magnificent, wonderful, marvelous, spectacular, astonishing, awe-inspiring, tremen%…" Then we cut him off because there's only so much room to tell you about all the great articles you'll find in this e-book about word and phrase origins, anagrams, palindromes, puns, jargon, tongue twisters, and the (unintentionally) naughtiest typos ever typed. What else is in here? Lots! A smorgasbord! A cornucopia! A plethora! Myriad! So expand your vocabulary with...

-How txting b changin langage lol
-The epic story of epic words that are losing their luster (like "epic")
-A pop music anagram quiz
-The world's wordiest novelist
-Presidential misspeaks that spawned new words
-Hilarious headstones from around the world
-Words and phrases that are much older than you'd think (like "politically correct" and "truthiness")
-Peter Mark Roget's obsessive-compulsive quest to create his famous thesaurus
-What irony isn't
-Trivia, with a catch--all answers contain poo

And much, much more!
