Title: Why we should all be learning Latin
Content: 'Quid Pro Quo' is Peter Jones' tour through some of the vocabulary which Latin and Greek have given to the English language. This is by no means a dry work, Jones is an entertaining writer regaling us with the stories behind the often surprising origins of words (and no, 'salary' does NOT derive from Roman soldiers being paid in salt - this is nonsense from Pliny the Elder attempting to retrospectively create an etymology - a favourite pastime of many writers of antiquity - for 'salarium'). It will be accessible to those with no prior knowledge of either language, and hopefully will encourage more people towards a study of the classics - and Jones ends with a short epilogue with such a plea. There's the occasional inaccuracy (e.g. Jones, as a classicist, perhaps really ought to know that Pompeii was still majority Oscan speaking rather than fully or even mostly Latin at the time of its destruction) but it doesn't really put much of a dent into this book.

Title: Entertaining and lucid.
Content: An excellent and entertaining book.. Peter Jone explains the Latin derivation of many English words (often originating in Classical Greek).On the way he explains the Roman (and Greek) cultural background to the words. An easy but satisfying read.
