The book is a good collection of the popular proverbs of English language.One need to know this if one want to have a good grip over English language bcoz apart from vocabulary the use of proverbs is also important.The book is not important/required from competition point of view.The binding is not good.All the proverbs are not explained still You can buy it if you want to have a book of proverbs for reference and revision.
Proverbs are in alphabetical order but some of them aren't explained. Whereas I came across a few proverbs as sexist. It's not good for children to compare a woman's skirt length to keeping things interesting. For a log of proverbs you can keep this book. I'm keeping it.
