Who Said That First?

Many bright minds have come up with expressions we now take for granted as part of the English language, and which we use freely in vernacular speech. But the originators of many of our most useful second-hand remarks go uncredited. So who said it first? This collection sets out to credit – as far as it’s possible to do so – the people who actually created many familiar terms in common use. WHO SAID THAT FIRST? is a wonderful book to dip into or settle a friendly dispute.
