Watson's Dictionary of Weasel Words, Contemporary Clichés, Cant & Management JargonBook - 2005 | 2nd ed
"The prime minister speaks of core and non-core election promises, your boss asks you to commit to an involuntary career event (you're fired), and hospitals refer to negative patient outcomes (you're dead). How to fight back? This book is a heavy weapon against politicians, managers and all those whose words kill brain cells and sink hearts. Striking a much-needed blow for truth and clarity, here is Don Watson, author of the international bestseller and 2003 Booksellers' Choice Book fo the Year, DEATH SENTENCE, at his sobering, scathing and wickedly funny best." -- Random House.
