Summary
Deft praise encourages others to feel as we do, share our enthusiasms. In this "age of awesome," our words and phrases of acclaim are exhausted, all but impotent. Arthur Plotnik is proffering a well knit wellspring of worthy and wondrous words to rescue our worn-down usage. --from publisher description
