Through the Language Glas - Guy DeutscherThe blurb on the back cover of Through the Language Glass: Why The World Looks Different In Other Languages by Guy Deutscher reads:

On an odyssey that takes us from Homer to Darwin, from scientists to savages, and from how to name the rainbow to why Russian water (a ‘she’) becomes a ‘he’ once you have dipped a tea bag into her, ‘Through the Language Glass’ explores some of the most intriguing and controversial questions about language, culture and the human mind.

That immediately got me interested, so I bought the book. It’s a great read and it contains a lot of interesting information on how language influences the way we look at things. Or maybe not. Find out for yourself!
