Get on the bandwagon,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Scholastic Dictionary of Idioms (Paperback)
Right off the bat, if you're autistic like me and have trouble understanding idioms, this product will surely knock your socks off. There are many idiom books out there, but I heard through the grapevine that this book was the cream of the crop. Now I usually take advice like that with a grain of salt, but I'm happy I went out on a limb and buried my head in the sand with this one, because it has truly made understanding idioms a piece of cake.
It's a shot in the arm to know that no longer will I be in stuck in a conversation with my autism as an albatross around my neck every time I open my mouth; I am now able to bury the hatchet with language. It's books like these that give you a leg up where genetics let you down. I highly recommend this book.

Your review of Scholastic Dictionary of Idioms was the cat's pajamas! It was as easy as pie to understand and you really showed me the ropes about this book. Deciding to buy will be like rolling off a log, thanks to your two cents worth of advise. You are a one in 10,974,697 reviewer, and I'm not just whistling Dixie.

In all the years I've read reviews on Amazon, you definitely take the cake with this one. Bravo. Because of your clever word-illustration, I will choose this book over the others, especially as it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Well played... :)
