Description
From "Smart Bombs" to "structural adjustment, " the words emanating from officialdom seem to grow more maddeningly indirect -- even downright dishonest (would you believe "misspoken"?) -- day by day. Here to sort it all out is the world's leading authority on doublespeak. Singling out the worst offenders tin such categories as "Death & Taxes, " "Planes, Trains, & Automobiles, " and "The Economy"), he tells who said what and when, and translates the doublespeak back into plain English, where it regains its rightful outrageousness. Full of daddy funny anecdotes and colorfully illustrated sidebars, Doublespeak Defined is the modern man or woman's best defense against a brave new world.
