    Outstanding. Enjoyed this enormously, especially the intelligent polemics. Slaughters holy scientific cows left, right and center. The style sticks to the middle ground between journalism and the best, most entertaining fiction. Superficially, this book is about linguistics but not really. It is written at brea

    Extremely interesting and well written. Specially the account of Noam Chomsky as the fake wise guru is great, funny and very accurate.
