This fascinating book shows that Peter Mark Roget was so much more than the language scholar who compiled the famous thesaurus that bears his name. He was a doctor, and a student of chemistry, philosophy, and physiology, who knew some of the most influential men of his time. Kendall writes in a clear and easy to read style, although he sometimes becomes a little too psychoanalytical regarding Roget's motives and intentions.
