This was reasonably interesting and entertaining, but it didn't quite live up to my expectations. In comparing it to other similar books, I've liked others better. The main point that grated on me was a view of the superiority of English. Additionally, some points didn't quite mesh with what I've read before, and I've read other reviews that mention specific points that may not be completely clear or accurate.

TheAromaofBooks Do you have other suggestions for books with a similar topic? I had some of the same issues with this one that you mentioned, but found the subject itself quite intriguing! 2d
Daisey @TheAromaofBooks I‘ll tag the one that I found most comprehensive and interesting (although also a bit overwhelming), but if you go to my Goodreads (link at the top of my profile) I have a Linguistics Etymology shelf with more possibilities. If you don‘t use Goodreads, let me know and I‘ll tag a couple more. 2d
TheAromaofBooks Oh thank you! I will definitely check this out. 21h

An amazing book about an amazing woman. Elizebeth broke codes of smuggling rings, maxi spy rings and, along with her husband, helped develop the science of cryptanalysis. #audiobook #nonfiction

This unfortunately titled book is actually a really interesting Iook at the bathing culture and history in Japan -- from outdoor natural hot springs and fuedal era water delivery to local bathhouses and super sento. Also a look at chemistry and radiation in regard to onsen, the evolution of the sex trade in Japan, and racism at bath time. Some nice black and white photos too. #mommyreads #travel #japan #onsen #history #nonfiction

Books from my son. He went to hear of panel of women philosophers at UConn. When I express an interest, he purchased a couple of their books. Along with two mysteries!

Learning about cults can only ever be enhanced by the spring weather. Really brings out that commune vibe.

I‘m really enjoying this so far: detailed, well researched and quick paced. #SSDGM

I heard a lot about this book and was really looking forward to reading it (I love a great travel memoir). This one was interesting, entertaining and unique. My biggest complaint is that the author said he went on his cross country bike trip specifically for material to write this book. To me, that takes something away from it and makes it less genuine. In the end though, I still really enjoyed it and gave it 4/5 ⭐️ // #memoir #nonfiction #travel

I‘m giving this a pick, but I‘m somewhat torn. I appreciated what the author had to say, and I felt she presented points well. However, I also felt the collection was more repetitive and less focused on “flyover country” than I expected. As a lifelong Missouri resident, I was looking forward to essays that clearly discussed Midwestern examples. Except for a few, I felt these could have been written anywhere in the U.S.
