Although there are some books around that talk about business jargon, all are aimed at native English speakers and focus either on complex technical definitions or else the humour in the jargon. Given that thousands and thousands of students and white-collar workers who are not native English speakers use English as their second or even first business language, they must find the jargon unbelievably hard to understand - as well as the humour. (How do you explain "get your ducks in a row" to a native Punjabi speaker?) This book sets out to identify and explain hundreds of such terms, jargon, expressions, metaphors, similes, etc., in a way that the non-native English speaker can understand - i.e. without resorting to subtle (English/US) humour or even more jargon. The style, however, is friendly and informal. Where possible, the origins of the expressions are included, too.
