An Asperger Dictionary of Everyday Expressions

I discovered this book while trying to find out whether a particular idiom was British or American in origin, and thought it might interest some people here. An Asperger dictionary of everyday expressions.
This revised and expanded edition has over 5000 explanations that help unlock the meaning of everyday idiomatic expressions and dispel the confusion that arises from the misinterpretation of language. Both informative and entertaining, the book addresses an important aspect of social communication for people with Asperger Syndrome, who use direct, precise language and 'take things literally'. Each entry is clearly explained, with a guide to its politeness level and suggestions for when and how it might be used. The book covers British and American English and includes some Australian expressions.
