Henry Beard & Christopher Cerf: Spinglish

Spinglish: The Definitive Dictionary of Deliberately Deceptive Language

Spinglish -- the devious dialect of English used by professional spin doctors -- is all around us.

Henry Beard and Christopher Cerf present Spinglish - the definitie dictionary to teach you the finer points of how to succeed in business (and politics and everything else) without really lying.
