Reseña del editor For shy young Peter Mark Roget books were the best companionsNand it wasn't long before Roget began writing his own book. But he didn't write stories; he wrote lists. Roget took his love for words and turned it to organizing ideas and finding exactly the right word to express what he thought. This elegant book celebrates the joy of learning and the power of words.
