Daphne M. Gulland, David Hinds-Howell. At the same time the dictionary's thematic arrangement makes it possible not only to study and compare all the idioms in a given subject area, but to match the right one to the right occasion. This book - gives full explanations of some 4,000 phrases; entries are grouped according to theme - for example, colours, elements, life and death, clothes, war and peace; offers a clear example of usage for each idiom, using everyday speech; provides background information on the origins of certain expressions, such as like the measles, nutty as a fruitcake and malapropisms and spoonerism. Gulland, David G. Hinds-Howell. This dictionary of idioms is designed to stimulate understanding and familiarity by explaining their meanings and origins and giving examples of typical usage. The basis of the author's approach is the grouping of phrases around a limited number of key words from which idioms are derived.

Comments:

Nkeiy
A pointless book that gives you a dictionary-like definition of the idiom with no origin information. I wanted to know where the idiom came from. None of that here.
Zainian
Excellent for international students or common students looking for ways to improve their English... with expressions such as neck-to-neck or sell down the river you can become an effective communicator by using this phrases that convey a lot of meaning...

I recommend it strongly.

its an old version and therefore doesnt match the pic but its a good book. the book itself is really useful for foreign learners.
