The Dimwit's Dictionary, Third Edition,is a compilation of thousands of dimwitticisms (clichs, colloquialisms, idioms, slang, and the like) that people speak and write unendingly.
Mr. Fiske is, in short, a fanatic, an extremist who apparently believes that clear language is our only hope for clear thought, that dull language deadens the mind and dampens the imagination, that a felicitous phrase is good news, that a strong prose style is a gift to be cultivated and cherished, that nothing, no, nothing in the world exceeds language in its significance to the human enterprise. As it happens, I believe in all this, too, which makes it an honor to salute a fellow fanatic and wish him and his book the great good fortune both deserve. -- From the foreword by Joseph Epstein
