On the Lamb in a Doggy Dog World is an affectionate tilting at linguistics by lingo-crusader Michael J. Sheehan. He offers challenging word games, amusing new words of his own contrivance, well-researched histories of favorite words and phrases, and many mythical explanations, including the 39 origins of "the whole nine yards." Fans of Words to the Wise: A Lighthearted Look at the English Language, his previous book, will appreciate the continued scholarship and expanded humor of On the Lamb in a Doggy Dog World: At Play with the English Language.
