About the Author:

JIM O' DONNELL has spent his career publishing books and writing them - his Administration Yearbook & Diary is an indispensable reference work for all those managing Ireland's government and business. He was assistant director general of the Institution of Public Administration from 1962 to 1999. He is author of How Ireland is Governed (1968) and Wordplay (1990). He is currently secretary to the Oireachtas Committee on the Constitution.

Review:

"Wordgloss is a vast grid of knowledge and information, as dense as chain mail and as intricate as a spiderweb. It is wide-ranging, erudite, accommodating and witty...a real reference work that will carry the reader far beyond the dictionary." -- John Banville
