Claus Aranha Of the three Pinker books that I marked, this is definitely the best of them.

message 2: by Jon (new) - rated it 5 stars

Jon Swanson Actually, just realized that I have read it. Thought for a moment there that I was conflating it with 'How the Mind Works'

I agree, it was excellent. May have to go back and read it again, it's been quite a while.

message 3: by Chad (new)

Chad Kohalyk It is one of my favourites. Probably quite a bit out of date nowadays, but it really only brought you up to the 90s anyways. Still, for a great, sweeping intro to the various fields of Linguistics, it can't be beat.

Plus, Pinker rules.
