Chambers Cliches and How to Avoid Them is an invaluable aid for writers, listing over 1,000 overused expressions and suggesting other possible ways these ideas can be conveyed. It also warns of potential alternatives that are in fact cliches themselves. Genuinely original alternatives are scattered through the text,encouraging writers to deploy their own customized expressions. The book also indicates how cliched each of the phrases is - from mildly irritating to completely unacceptable - and explains the origins of many of the expressions discussed.
