5.0 out of 5 stars if you want to know "why", this is a book for you. December 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a long time reader of the author's TodayIFoundOut website, and thoroughly enjoy the topics discussed. If you wonder why things are the way they are, especially in etymology and idioms, you will love this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for curious minds. January 8, 2014
By Jon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I also follow TodayiFoundout.com and have for a couple years and wondered why they didn't have a book out. I was excited when my wife got me this book for Christmas. Just like their website, the book is very well researched and written. The only down side to the book that I can find is it's hard to put down. I finished it in no time and am now awaiting a part two. (hint, hint TodayiFoundOut)

4.0 out of 5 stars Some words to the soon-to-be-wise January 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book to have sitting at your bedside or near the John. Explanations of whys are always interesting to me and these have the added benefit of not being overly long and yet, enough. At the rate I'm reading, I'll be enjoying the "Wise Book"
for a while.

4.0 out of 5 stars Most interesting! November 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well written and interesting. Many topics give you a “bonus” – some extra information on the matter. Certainly worthwhile if you are in to trivia
