You're Saying It Wrong by Ross Petras and Kathryn Petras

Missed pronounced words happen often. Just by the look of the word, it may appear to be said a certain way, but sometimes it isn't exactly correct. However, the book, You're Saying It Wrong by Ross Petras and Kathryn Petras is full of familiar words we see often and pronounced totally wrong! 
Sometimes it might not be an issue, but when you are in front of a group of people or speaking with a few employees, friends, or even family, you really don't want to sound ridiculous or silly by mistakenly pronouncing a word incorrectly. I think it actually makes you seem not as smart or professional. Though we all do it, it's natural to not pronounce every work correctly. Also by location, the words are said differently as well.
In this book, you will learn a few ways to pronounce the word, if available. Some actually only have the one correct way to pronounce it, and you will also learn the meaning and where it originated from. This is a type of dictionary, with a little more to it. There are only 150 commonly used words, which many may be used more often, while  a few are still aren't as much. However, this book is very well designed for the ones who love to perfect their knowledge and pronunciation of words.
