Wow Pinker is an outstanding writer. Wow I don't know jack about linguistics. This is my first encounter with linguistics and as such I'm not sure if this should have been my first book on it as everything was new. I would read Pinker again. It's a testament to his writing alone that I was able to stick with this for 400 some odd pages despite being oddly out of my depth for someone who generally can't shut up. I would give another book of his a shot sometime... like sometime after a book say with lots of pictures to pump up my intellectual ego...
