Reviews

Crystal's book is full of distractions and delights * Daily Express *
One of [Crystal's] best ... it builds gradually into a kind of linguistic tapestry, packed with abstruse information, wonderfully readable * Spectator *
If the history of language is a sort of labyrinth, David Crystal is an excellent guide * The Age, Australia *
Delicious revelations ... Crystal does an excellent job, not just of tracing the etymology of a word, but of relating it to social history, painting a picture of our times through words * Independent on Sunday *
