The author studies computational linguistics—how the frequency of the words we use, particularly function words such as pronouns and articles, can reveal a great deal about our feelings, level of honesty, social class, and more. Narrator Robert Fass guides the listener through the absorbing material with a judicious use of tonal variation, which keeps his delivery fresh. Listeners should be sure to access the supplementary material, available on PDF, which Fass continually refers to throughout the book. In particular, the PDF includes graphics that allow listeners to better comprehend the discussion and exercises that allow them to test their own linguistic habits.
