From the Back Cover:

Intelligence is sexy.

Good morning, dear students, and welcome to my favorite class: philology, or the love of words.

For me, nothing is more seductive than a good word origin story. I can't get enough. I mean, have you ever wondered what the word "cocktail" has to do with drinks? Or whether "hussy" was always an insult? Or why Benedict got his very own egg recipe? These are the types of questions that keep me awake all night long.

Whether you've been a straight-A follower of my YouTube channel or this is your first adventure in philology, I think that soon you'll be just as hot for words as I am! Are you ready for class to begin?

About the Author:

Voted the Sexiest Geek of the Year and a Hottest Woman of the Web, Marina Orlova has degrees in Russian and English language instruction. Her popular YouTube channel has more than 170,000 subscribers, and she's a regular on The O'Reilly Factor. Marina lives in California.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 180 x 127 mm. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Hot for Words combines the enticing stories behind everyday words, erotic or not, with even more enticing, never-before-seen, full-colour photos of Marina as she teaches us about words she loves. From blurb to booby, humble pie to hooker, floccinaucinihilipilification to f---, not a single one of Marina s lessons on English word origins is boring. Organised like the high school curriculum you wish you d had, Marina takes students from Homeroom (The Bare Essentials) to Phys Ed (Uniforms Optional), History (Fully Exposed!), Science (The Laws of Attraction), Detention (You ve Been Naughty), and more. Along the way, she provides pop quiz questions and interactive, online extra credit opportunities to fully engage readers. With full-colour photos throughout; a flirty, modern design; and tons of interesting trivia and information, there is no book in this category that is more entertaining, appealing, or fun.
