Synopsis

Better Than Great A Plentidinous Compendium of Wallopingly Fresh Superlatives by Arthur Plotnik

The English language has thousands of words to praise but ‘cool’, ‘good’ and ‘great’ have become our default choices. In ‘an age of awesome’, when we have to come up with new ways of expressing the exceptional, a new movie, TV programme, even a new book on a daily basis the words we use are almost exhausted. In Better Than Great Arthur Plotkin provides fresh and engaging new words to our vocabulary of praise. Sorted by category for easy use, do you need a way to express the physically affecting or joy giving? Do you want to describe someone’s beauty but bootylicious just doesn’t seem right?

It is the must-have reference for anyone seeking to rise above tired phrases when quality matters. Critics, journalists, novelists, public speakers, sales reps, marketers, blog-gers, Twitterers—any writer across the digital and literary spectrum—will all find ways to recharge their acclamatory powers and the perfect alternatives to those worn-out phrases that are used too often.
