Words Speak Louder than Actions: The Words You’ve Definitely Heard But Proba....

Hello! Wanna recommend you extremely useful book, called "Words Speak Louder than Actions: The Words You’ve Definitely Heard But Probably Don’t Know the Meaning Of. Exciting stories about the origin of the words that we use every day." It is FREE on Amazon (for 5 days), so you can find it if you want (or just link to it - https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07C18SVH2
Here is a description:

Hello to all curious readers. About a year ago I set myself a goal - to make a note every time I see or hear any “strange” word, the meaning of which I hardly know, but which I definitely already heard (while reading a book, watching a movie, listening music, communicating with people, etc.). In addition, I became interested in the origin of some words that we constantly use (for example, we all know the words Deja vu, A priori, Cliche, Sabotage; but where did these terms come from and why are they called like that?). And so the idea of this book was born.

Who is this book for?

This book is for those who want to know the difference between Idiom, Axiom, Allegory, Oxymoron, and Euphemism; for those who want to understand, in simple terms, what is Diffusion, Osmosis, or Quantum leap; for those who would be interested to know that the term “narcissism” comes from the Greek myth about Narcissus (a young man, who fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water); for those who would be interested to know that when King Charles the Second was fleeing the Roundheads, he is reputed to have offered his helpers a “Carte Blanche”. It was a blank sheet of paper with his signature at the bottom. The recipient of this could then write anything they wanted above the royal signature and it would be legal; for those who want to know the meaning and the history of Impressionism, Renaissance, Decadence, Expressionism or Baroque; who want to understand what is Bourgeoisie, Timocracy, or Feudalism; and even for those who want to know what the Large Hadron Collider is
