Synopsis

'Words are not only tools; they are also weapons.' Peter Bowler's guides, as his thousands of fans worldwide already know, are witty, charming, and clever volumes that introduce weird and wonderful words. Now the three volumes are published in a collected edition for the first time to provide words to help you wriggle out of sticky debates, deal with obnoxious dinner guests and fill in sick leave application forms with panache. A picturesque panoply of words of which neither you nor anyone else has ever heard, Bowler provides not only an expanded range of words themselves, but also a genuine sense how to employ them to devastating effect. "The Completely Superior Person's Book of Words" is an arsenal of over a thousand sonifacient verbal weapons with which to verbigerate your friends and gorgonise your enemies.

Peter Bowler has to his name several published books, most of which are, as the French say, introuvable, lending them an intrinsic attraction for those who cultivate the unattainable. He lives with his patient and beautiful wife Diana in an idyllic sub-tropical coastal town, and hopes one day to rule the world.
