English good! Content wanders,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Globish: How the English Language became the World's Language (Hardcover)
I work for an international NGO where English is the lingua franca and leadership and communication are at the heart of what we do.
McCrum makes some interesting points and tells quite an interesting story about the British Empire.
But I couldn't help feeling that he was simply warming up the Globish concept which - as he admits - is someone else's idea.
Unsatisfying and over-hyped.
