KIRKUS REVIEW

American slang has a pungent and direct way of getting to the heart of the matter, and Dr. Roy Smith, well-known from former books (New Light from Old Lamps, and Making a Go of Life) explores some of our most common slang expressions, deriving from them important lessons in Christian living. Among them are the familiar ""Who do you think you are?"" ""Make mine the same""- ""Where's the fire?"" ""What's the big idea?"" ""Where do you think you're going?"" ""Do you think you own the earth?"" and ""Don't kid yourself"". Dr. Smith deals with the issues and problems those questions raise with accustomed spirit and color. The book will appeal to the many who feel that in greater or less degree the import of these slang phrases has a direct bearing on their own thinking and living. And who doesn't?
