Review by: Jane Walsh on March 26, 2013 :
This book contains intelligent, creative, funny or "past their time" proverbs that are very well translated from Spanish into English.

After years of using Google translate and coming up with nonsensical "translations", this is a breath of fresh air. Idiomatic expressions are clearly understood.

Enjoyable, instructive, fun-to-share proverbs. Highly recommended to everyone, especially word and semantics lovers.

It's not what you say, but how you say it!
