sionnach commented on the word the professor and the madman (simon winchester)
Four stars. The book's full title is "The Professor and the madman: a Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the making of the Oxford English Dictionary".
Not all of Simon Winchester's books succeed for me (for instance, the rambling nature of "Krakatoa" drove me up the walls). But this was nicely done. I thought.
