Robert McCrum is the author of six novels and My Year Off: Rediscovering Life After a Stroke. Robert MacNeil was the co-anchor of PBS's The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour. Of the 10 or more books I have read on this subject in the last 6 mos, this and the similarly titled "The Stories of English" by David Crystal are the best as being an overview, introduction to English and its history. The Story of English, from the US tv series, and the Stories of English have similar titles but are very different books.
