Review of Planet Word

Waterman Planet Word Review

Happy New Year! Sharing my review of J.P. Davidson’s Planet Word (above) from the November Issue of Babel: the language magazine http://www.babelzine.com/ . I’m thrilled to be published in Babel as I am an original subscriber and have devoured every issue to date. I  recommend it to anyone who is, like myself, endlessly fascinated both by the nuts and bolts and the mystery and magic of human language.

  1. Cogent and well-written review. Makes me want to read the book — which is what a review is supposed to do! Well done.
