Product Details


“If you dare to be clever with words, Word Hero will help you to make good on that dare.” –Richard Lederer, nationally bestselling author of ANGUISHED ENGLISH and GET THEE TO A PUNNERY
 “WORD HERO takes the mystery out of clever wordplay and hands readers the tools to craft unforgettable expressions of their own. Way to spill the beans, Heinrichs. With this little book, everyone and their mother will know the secrets to being witty, pithy, and memorable. From my spot in the unemployment line, I stab at thee.” –June Casagrande, author of IT WAS THE BEST OF SENTENCES, IT WAS THE WORST OF SENTENCES
“Whether your goal is to pen unforgettable ad copy, add zest to your fiction, or just release a cascade of laughter, WORD HERO will get you there. Prepare to learn a lot — and be simultaneously amused.” –Jan Venolia, author of REWRITE RIGHT!, WRITE RIGHT! and THE RIGHT WORD
“If you love words, WORD HERO will magnify your wit, wisdom, and creative expression.” –Dave Trottier, author of THE SCREENWRITER’S BIBLE

“This will be of interest to readers on debate teams or in creative-writing classes, as well as to anyone needing a few pointers to make their speech stand out. For anyone fascinated by fun, fantastic, and frivolous words, or for those who want to give speeches where the susurration of their words causes listeners’ hearts to thud, this is the book.”School Library Journal
