Title better then the book.
Read a review from the New York Times for this book and they excerpted various parts. Unfortunately, those parts were the only interesting ones and maybe another 10 pages. If your not interested in the history of linguistics, forget it. It is not for the general public nor those interested in languages. by Patricia Tyler
