This is not an amusing story book, it is a facinating and infromative reference book providing (often) amusing insights into the workings of the mind. For a book comprising little more than a list of collective nouns, James Lipton has done sterling work in keeping the reader entertained. No classic comedy, but an instructive and thought provoking read. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in any aspect of the English language.
