Great book, 30 Dec. 2010
This book is fabulous, a collection of odd words which have all but disappeared from the English language. This book should be on every coffee table up and down the country in order to help bring back interesting words, like 'discombobulation', to regular use! We have bought many copies for friends and family and have a lot of fun guessing the definitions, or throwing a certain word into a sentence and seeing if the other person can decipher its meaning, fantastic for brain teasing!
