The Elements of Eloquence: How to Turn the Perfect English Phrase by Mark Forsyth


This book is education. The dry humour came through at parts and it gave great insights to the different writing techniques spanning centuries, visible all around us, unknown. It's especially intriguing to learn that many of such are deeply seeded in our everyday speech, media, so assimilated in our daily conversations, music without us knowing, and we never had known of such techniques if we weren't ever educated on this.

The same way we recycle and evolve concepts, communication is one of them. Fascinating! This is a good brief foundation for those intrigued by eloquence in the form of techniques, examining past literary works with evidence of applications.
