The Meaning of Everything – The Story of the Oxford English Dictionary
By Simon Winchester (Oxford University Press)
Think you love words? Try defining the half-million that make up the English language and explain their history and pronunciation. Winchester celebrates the obsession that drove a myriad of men and women to create the OED. A great book about an amazing achievement.
