Review: The Professor and the Madman

Simon Winchester (1998)

An interesting, quick read. Figuring that almost every book on my list is already, or will soon be, a movie, I took a spin on the internet to see if there was any such buzz for Winchester’s account of the true-story behind the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary. Get this–there’s talk of casting Mel Gibson (?!?!?) as the professor-half of the equation. Oh brother!
