I find myself questioning my use of "I words" as I write this review... (Wow. Four in one sentence!)
This book is basically a series of essays explaining the variety of the ways Pennebaker and his colleagues have attempted to analyze language with computers. Every chapter focuses on a new and different topic, and while not every chapter is equally interesting, there are enough interesting pieces of information spread throughout the book to make it an enjoyable read.
Finishing the book it is clear that the future of computer language analysis will be hugely important now that both processing speed and access to gigabytes of data is enabled through a networked world.
