For anyone interested in etymology, Latin, Greek, and the history of those languages-I'd say a must for anyone teaching or learning Latin who is unfamiliar with its history. The only con is that reader must be willing to wade through dense material and vast fields of footnotes. Some of best-researched material I've seen.

I learned more from this book about pertinent history than I did by taking the small amount of history I was required to take in college to get my BS in chemistry.This book is a history classic already.
