Barnhart presents newly popular or newly formed words of the early 90's. It's nice to browse through the pages and look at the funny illustrations. Also I found it interesting to read about the sources where the word showed up first and what other words it was made of. Some words, though, were quite easy to guess, so the explanation wasn't really informative but boring. That's why I'll rate it with "only" two stars.
