About the book:

Words are the building blocks of language, but their derivations are often stories in themselves. Have you ever wondered why we "wear" perfume, "read" magazines, vote for "candidates" and speak in "jargon"? With entries from "assassin" to "villain", the authors explain the origins of 300 words.
