Publisher's Summary

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.

It would be better as Whispersync

A sequential presentation of words and phrases with interpretations as indicated. An excellent resource for readers and authors alike, as well as useful for those involved in public speaking. See publisher's blurb.
Ms Will did an excellent job of keeping it from being a boring exercise, but it would be better as Whispersync.
