    Who was Stuart Chase?

    Have you heard of the New Deal from FAR?

    Chase wrote a book in 1931. It was published in 1932 titled A New Deal. FDR made his New Deal speach in 1932. Chase was a member of FDR's "brain trust".

    Have NOT read the book. Mr Google has this to say

    A popular approach to semantics in which the author discussess how to clarify the meaning of words and achieve more exact communication.

    Originally published in 1938 so unless updated may be outdated

    Educational? who knows? Like "How To Win Friends And Influence People" a book for its moment which is not now

    But not having read and relying on experience of similar situations with educational popular material little of the book will be of use today

    It is better than 1984 but interesting in relation to our times.

    Now we have NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

    The Tyranny of Words is more likely to make people immune to that bullshit.

    I read the JB Hi-fi magazine at odd moments

    The electronic version of NT News newspaper daily

    Was idly looking through eBay. Saw nice green Android. 5.5 screen, specs not to shabby for a backup phone $86. Dug bit deeper ONLY 3G.
