I enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone interested in a fascinating story.
The full title of this book is The Professor and the Madman, A Tale of Murder, Insanity and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary.
Two, it is not a story to put into a book because of the fact that it isn't long enough.
One of the best books I have ever read. I would give it more than five stars if I could. I did learn so much and enjoyed doing the learning! You will be glad to read this.Published 2 days ago by Amazon Customer

Definitely worth reading. Winchester's approach was as interesting as the topic. Who would have thought that reading about the creation of a dictionary could be so enjoyable?Published 21 days ago by MKS
