This review is from: Dr Johnson's Dictionary of Modern Life: Survey, Definition & justify'd Lampoonery of divers contemporary Phenomena, from Top Gear unto Twitter (Hardcover)
I was a bit sceptical of this book at first, suspecting the humour may be a little obvious. However, the update on Dr Johnson's Dictionary proves to be a delight and would make an ideal present for wordy friends. It's as if the great man himself has descended from his Regency tower to scrutinise the detritus of early 21st Century life.
