I picked this book up because I have a passing interest in language. I'm not an language academic by any means, so my perception might be scewed.
I did find the book utterly fascinating at parts, but on the whole there was much of it that really bored me as well. I thought I'd be more interested than I actually was, which would be good if I were exploring language as a potential major or course of study. Having finished the book I do feel more well informed about langage formation - and there are some great conversational topics I can now speak to - but I wouldn't say this book provided any "great revelation" about language "powers" or "mastery" as the title might suggest.
