Through the Language Glass

Read in June, 2012
Through the Language Glass: Why the World Looks Different in Other Languages
by Guy Deutscher

Guy Deutscher presents in delightfully readable prose a rather convincing case for differing cultural influences on the world's languages in turn influencing the way the world looks--culture influencing language, language influencing thought.

The writing amazes, the metaphors astound. A read for any educated person irrespective of focus. Fundamental knowledge for any thinking person.
