"Say goodbye to "awesome" and "amazing" and say hello to Better Than Great, a veritable TKO of stale superlatives with almost 6,000 alternative terms. Lexophile Arthur Plotnik presents a skull-spinning assortment of words and ideas for describing extraordinary things -- the exceptionally beautiful, joyful, delicious, large, forceful, intense, trendy and more -- even 50 gr8t texting superlatives! Better Than Great is the must-have reference for anyone seeking to rise above tired superlatives when the quality matters, as in love, commerce and the arts. Critics, journalists, poets, speakers, sales reps, bloggers, Twitterers -- word-slingers from the whole digital and literary spectrum -- should find it to be a concussively euphoriant, supernal, larky, epiphanic, uber-cool, soul-juddering experience, an upful and endorphining jubilee to make the heart warble. Take your vocabulary of acclaim from woeful to whoa-ful, and don't praise anything without Better Than Great!" -- p. [4] of cover.
