What do we know about animals and how do we know it? Collecting and examining expressions like "stool pigeon," "talk turkey," and "crocodile tears" may permit us to understand this better. Such idioms are widely used, though their origins are often unclear. Leveraging online Web 2.0 people power, Crow Sourcing is assembling witty and insightful material contributed by hundreds of imaginative co-authors. The book will demystify and reanimate a dizzying array of sayings, providing a beastiary of idioms that will separate the sheep from the goats. It's the cat's meow!
