The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview New York Times Best Selling Author Henry Beard, Co-Author of Spinglish.
Spinglish—the devious dialect of English used by professional spin doctors—is all around us. And the fact is, until you’ve mastered it, politicians and corporations (not to mention your colleagues and friends) will continue putting things over on you, and generally getting the better of you, every minute of ever day, without your even knowing it.
However, once you perfect the art of terminological inexactitude, you’ll be the one manipulating and one-upping everyone else!
Henry Beard and Christopher Cerf, authors of the New York Times semi-bestseller The Official Politically Correct Dictionary and Handbook, have compiled this handy yet astonishingly comprehensive lexicon and translation guide—a fictionary, if you will—to help you succeed in business (or politics, sports, the arts, or life in general) without really lying! (Your results may vary.)
Henry Beard attended Harvard University and was a member of the Harvard Lampoon. He went on to found the National Lampoon with Douglas Kenney and served as its editor during the magazine’s heyday in the 1970s. He has written numerous bestselling humor books.
