Reviews

an etymological delight. Concordia University Magazine; one of the more delightful books to hit my desk this season. . . . It 's a fascinating, informative, and engrossing book on a great number of words, their origin, original meaning, and for some of them, where the English language has stolen them from. It 's also often amusing, and I find myself still weeks after getting the book dipping into it. The Commentary, Interview; Word nerds rejoice! . . . Howard Richler delivers another riotously funny and informative text. Telegraph-Journal
