2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed, 30 Oct 2011
This review is from: The Story of English in 100 Words (Hardcover)
The idea seemed good, and the price was right, but overall I didn't really enjoy the book. David is at the top of any list of linguists, but he should try putting himself in the position of the reader and he will then perhaps see ways in which to make his text more reader friendly. Overall I felt this was Professor David showing off. Sorry David, but don't let my comments put you off, I have enjoyed all your other books.

Professor Crystal never shows off his merits, Peter! If you have indeed known him for so long, you should have understood that!
