Read full description of the books:
This book certainly was not a compelling cover-to-cover read. The effort to group words by topic to facilitate finding a word from its meaning was intriguing. And I did enjoy learning the different words used over the centuries by mariners and the fashion conscious.
Another useful area would have been regarding modern techology, but this book, already nearly ten years old, had many obsolete definitions, some of which were changing the day it was published.
While appreciating the author's attempt to present the English language and its history in a novel way, I would hope that he has seen the light and transferred his efforts to an online format through which he could be much more productive and keep his work continuously current. He has spurred me to seek similar online resources and think that Wiktionary may be one option.
