Book Description: LOGOMANIA: FATE & FORTUNE takes a look at Chinese and Western horoscope signs and the history of related popular phrases. If you have ever wondered why a rabbit punch is so dangerous, what fishing in troubled waters is about, or whether having the Midas touch is lucky or not, this book is for you. This book delves into the meaning and history of over 250 phrases. Arranged in chapters so you can check out phrases linked by common imagery, this little reference is packed full of anecdotal information. Each entry also comes with an example or two so you can see how the phrase is used. About the Author: ELLEN WHYTE was given her first dictionary in school when she was seven. Designed for kids, it was limited to defining common words in a dull way. At about the same time, someone gave her an encyclopaedia on animals. It had a panda on the cover and was filled with information about the biggest, smallest, fastest, toughest and weirdest animals on the planet. The dictionary was ignored while the encyclopaedia was read until it fell apart. It wasn't for some years before she discovered that language could be as interesting as animal encyclopaedias. She now has a bookshelf bulging with dictionaries, thesauri, encyclopaedias and other reference books, and is completely hooked on learning the stories that lie behind the words and phrases we use every day. She is also the author of Logomania: Where Common Phrases Come From and How to Use Them, Katz Tales: Living Under the Velvet Paw and Katz Tales: The Adventures of Scoop and Au. She also writes romances under her mother's name Normanda Whyte as it sounds more romantic.
