KIRKUS REVIEW

A compendium of interesting, unusual, if not always necessary, information that inquires into correct forms, derivations, origins, meanings. The why, who, how, etc., of legends, of physical, geographical, literary misconceptions, of words, of ideas- that range from tatooing, sneezing, whether aluminum or aluminum, mufti, port, on to whalebones and whether the chicken or the egg came first. A bit of everything for everyone's taste- that is usefully indexed.
