The ATG New Channel Book of the Week of February 28, 2011

The Secret Lives of Words by Paul West. New York: Harcourt, Inc., 2000. 0151004668 206 pages.

This is a book of words. Words have always fascinated me, not so much the story but the etymology of them. Not that I understand the word completely. Still, did you know that “widget” is a variation of gadget. Says West,

“Something Platonic gives the widget an appealing, fictional flair.”
