'Kudos should go to Mr Forsyth ...Clearly a man who knows his onions.' Daily Telegraph 'Forsyth takes words and draws us into their, and our murky history.' Evening Standard In one gifty box set for the very first time, Mark Forsyth's witty and erudite books on the wonders of the English language. In The Elements of Eloquence: How to Turn the Perfect English Phrase, Mark Forsyth explores writing style and rhetoric, divulging tricks used by the Ancient Greeks to Katy Perry, demonstrating that certain phrases - like 'Bond, James Bond' - are effective because it's not what you say, but how you say it. The Horologicon: A Day's Jaunt Through the Lost Words of the English Language, is an unusual book on weird words for familiar situations, from ante-jentacular to snudge, arranged according to the hour of the day when you really need them. And the Sunday Times Number One bestseller, The Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll Through the Hidden Connections of the English Language, is a book on the strange connections between words, taking in monks and monkeys, film buffs and buffaloes, and explaining precisely what the Rolling Stones have to do with gardening.
