Listening to this book was such a pleasure! The writer told the obvious but yet beautifully as he told the story for how English became dominant in the world with the help of different factors such as globalization.
This book is linguistically, economically, historically rich as it talks the reader to from a field of knowledge to another in a beautiful attempt to retell the story of English language.
This book is an interesting listen, but there is a lot of padding. I couldn't figure out for instance how the Gettysburg address ( quoted in full) contributed to English becoming the world's favourite language. You also get a potted history of Britain, only some of which seems relevant to the books premise.
