The Etymologicon springs from Mark Forsyth's Inky Fool blog on the strange connections between words. It's an occasionally ribald, frequently witty and unerringly erudite guided tour of the secret labyrinth that lurks beneath the English language, taking in monks and monkeys, film buffs and buffaloes, and explaining precisely what the Rolling Stones have to do with gardening.

The book / author: intelligent, well researched, witty, very eloquent.
The voice: British Englisch at its best, could transport the message of the book perfectly
Bravo! (by the way, where does this word come from? maybe in the next book)
