Description - The Artful Nuance by Rod L. Evans

'The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter.' (Mark Twain)

What's the difference between-

Nectar and ambrosia? Bough and branch? Astonished and surprised? Sensual and sensuous? Beside and besides?

Many people use these words interchangeably but there are actually subtle and interesting differences in meaning and usage. Now from the author of Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge comes a fun and fascinating word reference book for word lovers, students, and trivia collectors alike. Readers will relish learning about these distinctions in this entertaining homage to a gift we use every day - words.
