This review is from: The Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll through the Hidden Connections of the English Language (Kindle Edition)
If you love language you will love this book. The author takes a journey through the origins of many common words, but not in any dry academic way. Instead ideas are linked to resemble a stream of ideas so that one topic links to another. This has no benefit, but does give a sense of a story. I would recommend that you read it alone. Although I knew that it was annoying her, I just couldn't stop myself passing on titbits to my wife and reading sections of the book out. I suspect that I will re-read it many times.
