Synopsis: Concise alternatives for thousands of common, wordy phrases are provided in this guide to clean, strong prose. Updated and revised with hundreds of new entries, this new edition can tidy up any writer's long-winded phraseology with such helpful replacements as "because" for "based on the fact that," "cease" for "put an end to," and "violate" for "fail to comply with."

He lives in Rockwell, Massachusetts. Richard Lederer is the author of more than 3,000 books and articles about language and humor, including A Man of My Words. He is the author of the syndicated column, "Looking at Language." He lives in Costa Mesa, California.
