I Is an Other: The Secret Life of Metaphor and How It Shapes the Way We See the World

Product Description

Imported from USA

“Sherlock Holmes could glance at a bowler hat and tell that its owner's wife had ceased to love him. In this brilliant
book about metaphor James Geary is no less astonishing, as he deciphers the subtle implications embedded in advertising
slogans, familiar slang and government double-talk…. You'll scarf down every page of I Is an Other and then ask for
more.” —Michael Dirda, Pulitzer Prize-winning critic and author of Book by Book and Classics for Pleasure

For lovers of language and fans of Blink and Freakonomics, New York Times bestselling author James Geary offers this
fascinating look at metaphors and their influence in every aspect of our lives, from art to medicine, psychology to the
stock market.
