There are two activities in life that are essential to one's happiness. The first is to have one's day (to explore, engage, and enjoy life), and the second is to say one's say (to say the words to oneself and/or others that are worth saying).
An Uncommon Vocabulary is an exercise in saying one's say. Simply put, it is an A-to-Z book of common words and phrases that are described in ways better suited to them, in the opinion of the author.
The concepts described herein are working definitions, definitions that can be brought to mind to facilitate one's thinking and actions within particular circumstances.
When a working definition is properly occasioned (brought to mind at the appropriate time and in the appropriate circumstances), advantageous effects flow from it. In this way one's personal narrative (thinking vocabulary) is made richer and more rewarding, and one becomes more coherent and positive in dealing with everyday events.

Knowledge is power!
- Jason "I am listening to something everyday!"
Potential but nothing groundbreaking
More depth to the words chosen, such as humerus quips or even a bit of backround to the words that were picked.
One thing he could have done was use sentences to illustrate a unique perspective or otherwise.
Perfect for this
It had great potential but sadly misses so much
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review
