Staff Recommendation: Dreaming in Hindi

In Dreaming in Hindi, Katherine Russell Rich challenges head on the theory of the "critical period" in learning a language. This book satisfied my nerdy love of all things word-related with a pleasant and refreshing combination of narrative and linguistic theory. It's a good account of how much language really influences individuals, culture, and experience.
