Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
John Marciano has done it again! The author of "Anonyponymous" has a real passion for words, specifically their unique origins, and makes it interesting as well as educational to accompany him on his journey through the library to hunt down the place where some of our common English-Language words began. The story behind each word has been neatly packaged into a 1-2 page story - and that is really the right description - a story about each word. John makes you want to know "the rest of the story" on each of these words. The book can and should be digested in small quantities - perhaps a word a day for best retention. Really a fun read!

Are you like me? Did you love "Ripley's Believe it or Not", the "Book of Lists", and the "Guinness Book of World Record" as a kid? Were you the one who would read an encyclopedia and look up words just because?

Well, Mr. Marciano will definitely appeal to your child-like sense of wonder about words, and their origins. He has picked a group of words and given their history and origins in such fascinating detail, you'll want to share your findings with others.

Thank you Mr. Marciano and I'll look forward to your next book!
