Fischer has some good ideas in this book, the most important being that the context and type of language we use in various political situations can shape the way policy is made. He encourages policy makers to adjust their vocabulary, tone, and power position for their audience. Unfortunately, Fischer's own language is so over-the-top acamdemic, dense, unapproachable, and circuitous that it leaves the reader wondering if he was making a sly little joke when he wrote this book. There are much better books and essays about the power of language and discourse in politics - this would make a good secondary reference but not worth it on its own.
