Back cover - Doublespeak Dictionary is essential for anyone who has been victimized by "official" language, hyped by sales pitches, or deceived by pompous palaver. In plain, simple English, this unique work exposes hundreds of the sly verbal tricks used by expert doublespeakers - from con artists and political bamboozlers to weasel-word wizards.

Here is amusing-and sobering-proof of the poor times our language has fallen on at the hands of fast talkers whose outrageous rhetorical overkill may well be spelling the end of English.
