Anguished English, the flagship book of the Laurel Intrepid Linguist Library, is fast becoming the best-selling language humor book of all time. More than half a million readers have chuckled through its "accidental assaults upon our language."
Now comes More Anguished English, which is even bigger and funnier than its best-selling begetter. During the six years since tbe publication of Anguished English, Richard Lederer has collected more than 15,000 new examples of embarrassing, excruciating, and egregious errors in English. Two thousand of the best are in this book.
What makes these fluffs and flubs especially funny is the fact that none are made up! They all occurred in real life. That way, Lederer figures, he can't be sued for "defecation of character."
