+This seems like a well-researched and detailed book, but after two chapters it wasn't grabbing me.
+It's about the current dominance of English, and how it might come to be displaced.
+It seems like something I'd be into, so I'm going to put it back on my shelf for now, and maybe return to it in the future.
