By Hook or by Crook

By Hook or By Crook By Hook or By Crook by David Crystal

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was indeed "A journey in search of English." David Crystal takes us on a rambling trip around the countryside near the Welsh/English border, riffing on history, linguistics, popular culture, and whatever else pops into his head. It's fascinating and fun. I'm glad I'll never have to travel with him, though - with all the stories he has to tell, we wouldn't get anywhere.
