Limits of Language: Raising the bar in Amazonian praise

Sure it's bad form for publishers to point to the Amazon reviews for their titles (and besides, what happens, after all, when negative reviews sit next to the positive reviews the publisher is trying to highlight?). And anyway, Amazon claims all rights to those reviews, anyway. So I can't really just reprint what Amazon reviewer David M. Giltinan has to say about Mikael Parkvall's Limits of Language, but perhaps just this snippet would qualify as "fair use":
There are still three shopping weeks until Christmas. Nobody else has reviewed this book. So - if you know anyone with an interest in words or language - buy them a copy. Their puppy-like gratitude will last all year.

OK, then, shoppers--have at it.
