Praise for Etymologicon "The Facebook of books...Before you know it, you've been reading for an hour."--The Chicago Tribune "A breezy, amusing stroll through the uncommon histories of some common English words...Snack-food style blends with health-food substance for a most satisfying meal."--Kirkus Reviews "The stocking filler of the season...How else to describe a book that explains the connection between Dom Perignon and Mein Kampf."--Robert McCrum, The Observer "Crikey...this is addictive!"--The Times "Mark Forsyth is clearly a man who knows his onions."--Daily Telegraph "Delightful...Witty and erudite and stuffed with the kind of arcane information that nobody strictly needs to know, but which is a pleasure to learn nonetheless."--The Independent (UK) "Witty and well researched...Who wouldn't want to read about the derivation of the word 'gormless'? Or the relationship between the words 'buffalo' and 'buff'?"--The Guardian (UK)
