For those of us who make our livings relying on effective communications, the correct choice of words is essential.
Dr. Per-Olof Hasselgren, a professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School, has studied the relationship between human anatomy and English-language phraseology. It’s extensive.
In his book, “Body Language — From Head to Toe,” Dr. Hasselgren dissects 2,000 idioms, words, and expressions containing body parts.
Host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart, who interviewed Dr. Hasselgren in March 2016, says his amusing book is not only eye-opening, it will also give creatives a head start on becoming superior wordsmiths. A Best of Monday Morning Radio encore.
