This book was fascinating! It was very readable, and had all sorts of interesting information about the various nations and languages and how they relate.

Alas, not that general audience-cy as its title sounds.

I read all the footnotes in this book. How often can you (well, I) say that?

I'm writing this review a good number of months since I've read the original. If I remember correctly, there is as much history of other lingua francas as there is talk of English. The part about lingua francas becoming unimportant because of machine translation is overly optimistic.
