No one knows more about everything—especially everything rude, clever, and offensively compelling—than John Waters. The man in the pencil-thin mustache, auteur of the transgressive movie classics Pink Flamingos, Polyester, Hairspray, Cry-Baby, and A Dirty Shame, is one of the world’s great sophisticates, and in Mr. Know-It-All he serves it up raw: how to fail upward in Hollywood; how to develop musical taste, from Nervous Norvus to Maria Callas; how to build a home so ugly and trendy that no one but you would dare live in it; more important, how to tell someone you love them without emotional risk; and yes, how to cheat death itself. Through it all, Waters swears by one undeniable truth: “Whatever you might have heard, there is absolutely no downside to being famous. None at all.” Studded with cameos, from Divine and Mink Stole to Johnny Depp, Kathleen Turner, Patricia Hearst, and Tracey Ullman, and illustrated with unseen photos from the author's personal collection, Mr. Know-It-All is Waters’ most hypnotically readable, upsetting, revelatory book—another instant Waters classic. “Waters doesn’t kowtow to the received wisdom, he flips it the bird . . . [Waters] has the ability to show humanity at its most ridiculous and make that funny rather than repellent.” —Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post “Carsick becomes a portrait not just of America’s desolate freeway nodes—though they’re brilliantly evoked—but of American fame itself.” —Lawrence Osborne, The New York Times Book Review

One of the most complained about and denigrating social issue that impacts human relationships and friendships is the Know-It-All behavior in all its manifestations and ramifications. Furthermore, most people know and remember vividly the feeling of discomfort and tense trepidation that lasts the duration of an encounter with a Know-It-All. The tens of thousands of Know-It-All related complaints from people of all walks of life, gender and culture helps us to comprehend the magnitude of this exasperating and aggravating social problem. This book is uniquely a first on many fronts, it defines the term Know-It-All, identifies who is a Know-It-All, enumerates in an anecdotic manner the different ways people manifest the Know-It-All behavior, recounts how the Know-It-All behavior makes us feel, details psychologist’s recommendations for curtailing and stopping the Know-It-All behavior, and finally empowers victims with 20 practical ways to peacefully and respectfully shut up a Know-It-All. This well researched book has more than 250 references.
No matter how many great ideas you put in front of a Mr. Know It All, they will always come up with another idea that they believe is better than yours.

As Emily was laying in her bed thinking about the day’s events, she realized that every time she wished something bad would happen to someone, it did. She thought, is this just a coincidence, or is her luck finally changing? Emily jumped from her bed because she realized that she left the stone in her pocket. She took the stone out of her pocket and washed it off in the bathroom sink. The stone was sparkling even brighter then before. Emily walked back to her bedroom and laid back down in her bed. Emily was looking at the stone, continuing to think about the day’s events, when she thought, maybe just maybe, it wasn’t luck or a coincidence, but maybe the purple stone was what made the days events occur!

This book, a tribute to Angela Downing, consists of twenty papers taking a broadly functional perspective on language, with topics ranging from the general (grammar as an evolutionary product, text comprehension, integrative linguistics) to particular aspects of the grammars of languages (Bulgarian, English, Icelandic, Spanish, Swedish). The more specific papers are sequenced according to Halliday’s division into ideational, textual and interpersonal aspects of the grammar, and cover a wide range of areas, including aspect, argument structure, noun phrase/nominal group structure and nominalisations, pronominal clitics, theme in relation to writing skills, discourse structures and markers, the role of attention in conversation, the functions of topic, phatic communion, subjectification, formulaic language and modality. A recurrent theme in the volume is the use of corpus materials in order to base functional descriptions on authentic productions. Overall, the volume constitutes a panoramic but nevertheless detailed view of some important current trends in functional linguistics.
