Reviews

Eye-opening and thoroughly entertaining ... [Dorren] is wonderful company: chatty, informative, enthusiastic. -- Laura Freeman * The Times *
Hugely readable ... Dorren is both an intimidatingly gifted linguist and a wonderfully eloquent writer. You couldn't wish for a better guide to the wonders of the world's bewildering array of tongues. -- Simon Griffith * Mail on Sunday *
Gaston Dorren's punchy book gives us a fascinating insight into what we're missing out on in the linguistic jungle ... I loved this book * Irish Independent *
Praise for Lingo: The depth and breadth of Dorren's understanding and knowledge are awesome. * The Times *
Dorren's tour of the continent is a richly diverting exercise. He has something interesting to point out about nearly every topic ... brilliant. * Guardian *
A new approach to understanding the world ... ideal for any cunning linguist * Wanderlust *
Full of odd linguistic facts ... fascinating * Times Literary Supplement *
