"Head and shoulders above" nghĩa là gì?

'Head and shoulders above' có một từ mới là shoulder nghĩa là cái vai. Thành ngữ này được dùng để chỉ một người hay một vật vượt trội hay hơn hẳn những người khác.

Ví dụ
The applicants for the administrative assistant' s position met all the basic requirements (điều kiện căn bản). But I was impressed with Ms. Kenton. Not only did she have some business management experience, but she also seemed quite responsible and communicative (phát biểu ý kiến rõ ràng) in her interview. I found her head and shoulders above the rest. Let's hire her!

That's why I like my neighbor. He works at a car dealership (tiệm bán xe), but is always prepared to give me his honest opinion about cars. When I've needed a new one, he's been able to help me sort out (tách) those vehicles that are similar from those that stand head and shoulders above the rest.
