Quality


I was impressed with the plethora of information contained in so compact a book.


For anyone with the least interest in that mysterious human quality called language this is the book for you.


The last chapter deals with the topic of language extinction.

Price


'babel' is well worth the curious observers attention.

Competitiveness


The examples weren't missed though as the author makes his point without them.


It measures up to his outstanding lectures made for the teaching company.
