Actually I finished it several weeks ago... lots of things I haven't updated here. Nevertheless, the book is fantastic and Hazlitt's economic theory (following the Austrian school) is still as relevant today as it was when it was first penned. I highly recommend this book as a primer for people interested in economics who've never read much on the subject.
I noticed your remarkable list of language-related books. The Unfolding of Language describes in very readable terms step-by-step the evolution of languages from simple words to more complex sentence structures. It has a lot of examples, not only from English, but from languages all over the world. It is Darwin's evolution, but for man's greatest invention: language.
