Hello everybody, hope you all had a great weekend!
Today is Monday so it’s business English time again and today’s expression is “by the book”.
By the book means to follow rules and procedures exactly, it can be used in a positive or negative sentences like these…
We must do everything by the book, we have surprise inspections on a regular basis.
Our old boss was awful, he would just do everything by the book and never gave us any freedom to be creative.
Hope those come in handy.
