"Babel No More" will make every reader want to learn a new language just to enter into the world of language lovers. The book takes you on an exploration of languages and the people who have mastered them. Erard travels from Italy to India in search of hyperpolyglots and the answer to the question: How many languages can one person learn? This book is full of interesting interviews with academics and ordinary individuals who have studied dozens of languages. And yet, these individuals have remained hidden from the world. Now, Erard has found them and shared their secrets with us. The writing provides insight into why some struggle to learn a second language and why others can speak several. Whether you are a polyglot or a monolingual, you will feel appreciation and excitement in that humans have been gifted with the art of languages.
