If you're an Anglophile, and/or a real lover of language and its nuances, this is a fascinating and fun book to read straight through. The more casual reader, either just browsing through its pages or in search of a specific phrase, will turn up lots of interesting tidbits of American vs British English. Either way, it's a well and clearly written guide to the language spoken on both sides of the pond.
