These two English Idiom books are a collection of the stories the author presented on air.  Be it to tap the power of the usage of English idioms, or to marvel at life, or at the contrast of attitudes, these bilingual books are of special benefit to students of languages and cultures.  The author has added some of his cartoons too. Hopefully the readers will share a little laugh, or sigh, with him.
