    1. One of the best books on the insidious predicament of doublespeak. The majority of the professors and staff I had experience with at The University of Texas at Austin consistently utilized doublespeak.

    2. It would probably appeal more to general readers who don't already think about this sort of thing all the time.

    3. Interesting book with lots of good examples of "doublespeak;" nevertheless, seems to drive the same point home over and over again.

    4. Somehow I expected a bit more from this book. It feels a bit too much like its just listing endless examples rather than discussing the issues. Some parts were a bit of an eyeopener. The attempts on making some jokes here and there didn't really do it for me. This was written back in 80's, which is fine. I would be more interesting to read a similar book on current events, although this of course is not a critique of this book.
