The Meaning of Everything

The Meaning of Everything

Written by Simon Winchester

Narrated by Simon Winchester

CD Edition


The creation of the Oxford English Dictionary was a remarkable achievement, and a story of determination, hard work and inspired research. Simon Winchester, with his characteristic gift for bringing history to life, charts the fascinating life of the OED leading up to the appointment of the first editor, James Murray, in 1879, through to the OED's triumphant publication in 1928 and beyond. The Meaning of Everything is a must for anyone with an interest in language and words.

'A fine storyteller, the author also proves to be an excellent narrator. Perfect listening for anyone with a love of words.' SUE DOBSON, CHOICE MAGAZINE
