Delve into the hidden nature of words:
An irresistible mix of information, curiosity, and fun

Why do some never get spoken, and others never written? Each chapter is charmingly illustrated¡ªand accompanied by a rich assortment of games, lists, puzzles, and quotes. From polite words to crass words, from p-c words to Shakespeare¡¯s words, from food and wine words to jazz and drug words¡ªthe book is an exciting exploration into the abundance and variety of words.
