Praise

“A captivating, almost entirely unpedantic book . . . solidly founded in scholarship, love of language, and an unabashed worldliness about play itself.” —Washington Post

“Absorbing . . . so curious, amusing, and enlightening . . . we almost inadvertently learn a great deal about linguistics. [But] it seems scarcely to matter what we’ve learned . . . we’ve simply had too much fun.” —The New York Times
