At last, the longed-for and much-requested companion volume to Death Sentence, Don WatsonÆs bestselling and critically acclaimed book on the decay of public language. This book is for people who really want to know what an æasset footprint' and an æaggressive timelineÆ are, and for those who want to mock the very idea. An invaluable handbook and guide to modern managerial language, newspeak, and linguistic political chicanery; Watson's Weasel Words is also an essential reference for victims and saboteurs; like Death Sentence, it is both serious and amusing - deadly serious and soberingly amusing.

Sludge-mongers, weasels, fog-merchants and charlatans beware: Don Watson is back to take a blowtorch to the bellies of those whose words kill meaning and challenge sanity.

'The Book of the Yearàwitty, erudite and funny. Awfully funny.' - Australian Financial Review Magazine.

æAll Australians should read this book. All Australians should be grateful that it has been written.' Julian Burnside, Australian Book Review.
