I bought this as a gift for a friend who is working on her Ph.D. in English. She loved the book and also knew all the terms in the table of contents. When I viewed them when I first purchased the book, many of them looked like Greek to me
If you are excited by dictionaries, get giddy about language, & are constantly searching for the perfectly crafted sentence, this book is for you. Forsyth brings in examples from the far reaches of classical texts to modern pop songs & pulp literature. His own style is easy to read & understand. Whether you are reading to be a better writer, a better reader, or just because grammar is your groove, baby, I strongly recommend this book.
Mark Forsyth's breath taking erudition will delight anyone who thinks of themselves as a wordsmith. You read him and think that you knew that but you also know sneakily that you didn't quite know it, and certainly didn't know the big words he teaches you to sound oh so, so, clever. It is deep and it is light hearted and very, very, witty. I wanted to give him five stars for intelligent entertainment and the only reason I held back was that the author's prose at time became the intellectual mirror of himself showing off. Not for everyone. But for those who love language, a joy to read.
