About the Book

WARNING FROM THE AUTHOR: This book will teach you absolutely nothing. I only say this because some of the early reviewers of this book were angry that I didn't teach them about the origin of these expressions. Who are these people? I have no idea. If you want to learn something, go watch a Kahn Academy video. If you want to laugh, or almost laugh, then give this book a shot.

Actually, Clams Are Miserable is a humorous exploration of the clichés and expressions Americans use every day without really thinking about what they're saying.

Some of the expressions poked fun of in this book include:

+ "It's raining cats and dogs out there."

+ "I'm all ears."

+ "That's like comparing apples and oranges."

+ "Let's bury the hatchet"

+ "When push comes to shove"

+ "Happy as a clam"

+ "Let's give 110%"

+ "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water"

...and many more.

If you've said or heard any of those expressions in the last month, you might get a kick out of this book. But remember, this isn't History 101, this is recess.

So kick off your shoes (not literally, that might hurt someone) and enjoy a fun, easy read that will forever change the way you look at these common expressions.


PS...Thanks in advance for your tip if you choose to leave one, it's much appreciated!
