KIRKUS REVIEW

Another look at the entertaining idiosyncracies of English from the author of Mad as a Wet Hen!(1987). Some of the expositions here belabor the obvious, but the juxtapositions are often intriguing (e.g., consider the several index entries under ""hitting"" or ""running""); Huffman's gleeful cartoon, style amplifications make the lesson still more fun.
