Although a noble project, there are very strong and unfortunate biases at work that undermine the effectiveness and usability of this book. The author dismisses many words and phrases outright, without any explanation. This is very frustrating, because if there had been greater guidance or explanation, then perhaps I could agree with his outcomes. As it is, the work remains a useful addition to a writer's library, but it is not as complete as it could be.

I find the Banned List purchased from Amazoon interesting and helpful. Some are surprising. I try not to use the listed over used words and sayings. However, the list seems to lean towards the language of the author. We, in America, could add more to the lis.

I wondered if there were others, annoyed as I am with the increasing use of overworked cliches, metaphors and jargon. Here is a list of hundreds that I hope never to see or hear again. John Rentoul writes with knowledge, ire and humour.

I was expecting to giggle a little bit but this was actually laugh-out-loud funny. It also taught me a fair bit and I can apply his simple rules in my writing too - he explains why you should as well which is very helpful
