In the books I read there is not a single more cited author then Noam Chomsky. Curious about this man and knowing that his major contributions have been in the realm of language I decided the pick up the book. While I found what he has to say very thought provoking and intellectually stimulating it is not straight forward. If you have no background to language at all it takes some serious effort and slow reading to read this book. It's pretty short and some parts are pretty dry but I cannot deny that the conclusions and topics discussed are both intellectually stimulating and provocative in nature.

If you are just looking for books that stretch your mind there are other books out there that may resonate more strongly with your interests but this is as good as any.

In an age of technology where everything is demoted to 4-character acronyms and semi-colons followed by parenthesis, we actually forgwt that words have meanings. Words derived from the need to communicate. Perhaps this lack of understanding of language and semantics, has led to the overall inability to communicate, even in an era where mass communication is encircling the globe. Chomsky is the champion of intellect and language. His insight and research and philosophy make this, of course, required reading for every writer, politician, or communicator.
