Editorial Reviews


This is a fun book to read. Easy to pick up and set down when you have only a few minutes to spare. I particularly liked the background speculation on how each euphemism arose. GM --EMail from individual

I am so impressed with the invitation to give appropriate credit and a free book to anyone contributing a favorite political euphemism for the next edition. --Another EMail from recipient of advanced copy

If euphemisms mask straightforward words that are too harsh, too hurtful, too blunt, too embarrassing, too direct, too open or too private, then this book is the opposite. It pulls no punches. --Email from from potential customer

About the Author

Godfrey Harris has been President of Harris/Ragan Management Group, a public policy consulting firm headquartered in Los Angeles, since 1968. He began consulting after serving as a university instructor at UCLA and Rutgers; a U.S. Army intelligence officer; a U.S. foreign service officer in Bonn, London and Washington; an organizational specialist in President Lyndon Johnson s Executive Office; and a program manager for an international financial company in Geneva. His consulting assignments have involved political and economic analysis and advocacy; marketing public and private sector products and services through word of mouth advertising; developing new environmental and commercial products; promoting international tourism to various destinations; and creating commemorative, enlightening and educational public and private events. His fascination with the power of euphemisms stretches back to his days as a U.S. diplomat. While most Americans equate diplomacy with the art of being able to convey a precise intent without using precise words, Harris has always seen diplomacy as the art of obtaining results in which everyone can claim a benefit at the least possible cost or where there is sufficient room for future maneuver that will not impinge on the interests of others. This is Harris s 76th book, written on his own or with associates. He holds degrees from Stanford University and the University of California, Los Angeles.

Can’t help laughing out loud reading the euphemistic expressions.
