The Meaning of Everything: The Story of the Oxford English Dictionary by Simon Winchester|
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Yet another look into the genius of the OED. Super recommended to word fans–the amount of playful word fun is amazing. There is also a lot of “behind-the-scenes” information in this volume–great stuff on Murphy, the madmen, the OED Publishing politics, etc.–seriously fun reading.
