I would love to see this writer serialize a column that follows this book's path: start with a word and move forward through connections to history and culture and have each column be able to stand alone, but also connect cleanly to the column that preceded and follows. If you know people who enjoy language, consider this as a possible gift. The structure is entertaining as the writer takes us from word to word with smooth connections that startle. This book reignited my curiosity at the origins of words.
