Summary

A delightful and essential compendium of words, new, old or abused through Brexit.
BLUNDER.
To mistake grossly, to err very widely.
'Someone had blundered' (Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 'Charge of the Brexit Brigade')
EUTHANASIA.
An easy death. Strangulation by EU regulations, according to Brexiteers.
'Brexit' seems to mean many things, but none of them is clear. Fortunately, help is at hand from Harry Eyres and George Myerson, who offer us pithy and incisive definitions of the key terms associated with this momentous process.
From 'COCK-UP' to 'WRETCHED' via 'BUFFOON' and 'MAY', Johnson's Brexit Dictionary is a delightful, witty and essential compendium inspired by Dr Johnson's original, and updated for our turbulent times.
Available since: 03/29/2018.
Print length: 144 pages.

    Parlez-vous Doggish?At long last, dogs will know just how smart their owners can be. By unlocking the secrets of the hidden language of dogs, psychologist Stanley Coren allows us into the doggy dialogue, or "Doggish," and makes effective communication a reality.Drawing on substantial research in animal behavior, evolutionary biology, and years of personal experience, Coren demonstrates that the average house dog can understand language at about the level of a two-year-old human. While actual conversation of the sort Lassie seemed capable of in Hollywood mythmaking remains forever out of reach, Coren shows us that a great deal of real communication is possible beyond the giving and obeying of commands.How to Speak Dog not only provides the sounds, words, actions, and movements with which we can effectively communicate with our dogs, but also deciphers the signs that our dogs give to us. With easy-to-follow tips on how humans can mimic the language dogs use to talk with one another, How to Speak Dog gives dog lovers the skills they need to improve their relationships with their pets.
