Make your writing and speech shine like the sun Here's the most entertaining and instructive book about enlivening and clarifying communication by comparing one thing to another. Ward Farnsworth provides a wide-ranging, practical, tour of metaphors, arranged by theme. He shows how the best writers have put figurative comparisons to distinctive use--for the sake of caricature, to make an abstract idea visible, to make a complicated idea simple.
Using hundreds of examples, Farnsworth demonstrates all the different stylistic ways that points can be unforgettably made. There are quotations from novelists, playwrights, philosophers, and orators--along with commentary on how and why they work to bring power to words both in person and and on paper.
Writers and speakers, this book will make you a star.
