I Love It When You Talk Retro

I Love It When You Talk Retro: Hoochie Coochie, Double Whammy, Drop a Dime, and the Forgotten Origins of American Speech by Ralph Keyes. You can read an interview with Keyes here. One fun nugget from the interview:

I was surprised to find out that there were no "secret decoder rings." There were secret decoder pins, but no rings.
And the book is 34% off at Amazon.
