Customer Review

on October 24, 2013
I love David Crystal's enthusiasm & expertise & this book gave me access to both. I really enjoyed the idea of husband & wife touring Britain, searching for places of English Language significance & their mutual love of the subject shines through. Hilary Crystal's pictures add an extra dimension to the book & there are some great photographs of some pretty nerdy places! Where else would you see the great David Crystal standing next to Doctor Who's Tardis (p.128) or peering into George Bernard Shaw's writing shed (p.372)? As usual, David Crystal's expansive knowledge is handled with a light & humorous touch. Long may his reign of popularized English Language publications continue!
