“Word Wise”: my new book on word trash and word power. Preorder now!


2020, has been for some of us, a year devoid of physical contact.

2020, perhaps more than any other year of our lives, has been the year when our words have mattered most.


With an intention to spread connection--not corona--I am excited to reveal the cover of my new book, “Word Wise”. From Running Press @RunningPressBooks (Hachette Book Group @hachetteus):

“An eye-opening guide on how we talk and write to one another, Word Wise explores 400+ of the most common cases of word trash (filler words, hyperbole, and abstractions) and word power (verbs of action, ear candy, onomatopoeia). Examining social media, the language of a president, AI language research, and heard-on-the-street lingo [...] 

With wit, practical applications, and a small dose of nitty-gritty grammar, Word Wise will help you communicate more effectively at home, at work, and online.”

You can preorder now here @ https://www.runningpress.com/titles/will-jelbert/word-wise/9780762499687/ . Preorders count towards the first week of sales for the bestseller lists :). Thank you!
