The Language Instinct: The New Science of Language and Mind by Steven Pinker


This guy is very clever. He is even cleverer at explaining the clever things he thinks about in such a clever way that you don't need to be nearly as clever as him to get to grips with them.

I confess to getting completely lost in the grammar discussions and skipping forwards a little. But even then I found the rest of the book very rewarding indeed.

The main reason I like this chaps books is because they are all about me.

They are about you as well so go and read them now.

Beautifully written with a naughty sense of humour and one hell of a profound message.

3.5 out of 5 stars.
