A handy book if you're looking for a quick introduction to a language and its history. I felt that these introductions were almost too brief at some points though, varying from 2 pages to just a few sentences per language. I also missed certain languages that I would have expected to be featured in this book. For example, Indonesian is collectively mentioned with other Austronesian languages, but there is no page, not even a sentence specifically dedicated to this language.
