The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary - Simon Winchester

Enjoying this so far.  

 

James Murray's  life is fascinating.  His thirst for knowledge overcame such humble beginnings. Inspiring,  really.  However, the circumstances that forced William Minor into an asylum made me so sad. 

 

The history of words,  the definitions and etymologies weaved into the narrative are well done!  So far so good.
