The Story of English in 100 Words

The Story of English in 100 Words - David Crystal I love reading about etymology and the evolution of the English language, so I was predisposed to enjoy this one. The only problem I had was that it didn't feel long enough and I keep wanting each section to go into more depth, but that was a function of the intended structure of the book--briefly studying 100 specific words as representative of entire branches of the language. For what it was, it was both informative and entertaining.
