The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary by Simon Winchester

hi-five, kid

View from this book:

A picture’s worth a thousand words, so I’ll save you the trouble of reading (who reads, anyways?) and just give you this cutesy snapshot from the visitor center where I work (and where I happened to read this book).  You’re welcome.

The book:

Murder? insanity? the OED? It’s all here. And it’s a true story! A quick, easy read that will knock your socks off about dictionaries. Really.  8 out of 10
