KIRKUS REVIEW

This was a surprise. I was expecting another book on platform presence, and allied subjects. Instead, this is an enlargement of the Colby phonetic system in a dictionary of pronunciation of words and proper names, a sizable section on the proper choice and use of words (too often misused), and another section on the origins of familiar expressions. The radio has made the world speech conscious. This should prove a first aid kit to everyone who wishes to improve his diction.
