Brandreth fans will love it, everyone else should give it a try
Gyles Brandreth is one of those people who divides opinion, so why buy a book written by him? I was looking for a book that was encyclopedic in scope that neither dumbed down nor over complicated the various linguistic meanings, peculiarities and literary techniques that come under the VERY broad heading of word play. A friend recommended this to me and after buying a copy I am pleased I purchased a book from this author. It slightly suffers from a few too many anecdotes eg 'I once met Peter Sellers' etc but when recounted they usually are making a point and are brief enough. However, most pages will either make you smile, surprise you or make you go 'I didn't know that'. I've found it good for dipping in randomly rather than reading from cover to cover. It is worth pointing out that the subtitle 'A cornucopia of puns, anagrams and other curiosities of the English language' does the book a great disservice as it suggests that this book will mostly appeal to fans of crosswords and word puzzles. It is much more than that and I would recommend it to writers, lyricists and poets who are looking for plays on words in their books, plays, songs and poems. After all the title of Oscar Wilde's most famous work, The Importance of Being Earnest is one of the most famous examples of word play.
What's in a word
A must for all wordaholics,Gyles fans,Countdown fans and anyone to whom words are more than just letters written down, a compendium to be picked up and browsed from time to time rather than be read through like a novel.
Great for dipping into
For me this is a book to have by my side, so that I can pick up when I have a few minutes o spare and dip in to. Yes you can read it cover to cover if you want. For this kind of book I prefer the 'Book' version as to the 'Kindle' version. It is the readers choice. for me it is easier to read in book form. Either way it is a great book and can well recomend

Wouldn't be without at least one of these when playing scrabble. Tiny and easy to navigate but all words include details of their meanings - I love to find new words to use in real life as well as scrabble
