: : : : "Listening to America" by Stuart Berg Flexner (Simon and Schuster, New York, 1982) or any other book by Mr. Flexner.
: How good on phrases is the Flexner book (Listening)? I know it's illustrated, but I'm more interested in the phrases. For instance, does it include a lot of phrases that are not included in the lists on our Phrase Finder website here?
: Thank you...
It is an excellent book. It "fills in the gaps" quite often.
