Críticas:

"Fascinating reading.... Deutscher does not merely weave little-known facts into an absorbing story. He also takes account of the vast changes in our perceptions of other races and cultures over the past two centuries."-- Derek Bickerton, "The New York Times Book Review" "An informative, pleasurable read... A gifted writer, Deutscher picks his way nimbly past overblown arguments to a sensible compromise."--Amanda Katz, "The Boston Globe" "A thrilling and challenging ride."-- Christopher Schoppa, "The Washington Post" "Brilliantly surveys the differences words and grammar make between cultures."--Carlin Romano, "The Chronicle of Higher Education" "A most entertaining book, easy to read but packed with fascinating detail."--Michael Quinion, "World Wide Words" ""Through The Language Glass" is so robustly researched and wonderfully told that it is hard to put down... Deutscher brings together more than a century's worth of captivating characters, incidents, and experiments that illuminate the relationship between words and mind... He makes a convincing case for the influence of language on thought, and in doing so he reveals as much about the way color words shape our perception as about the way that scientific dogma and fashion can blind us."-- Christine Kenneally, "New Scientist " "Entertainingly written and thought-provoking... Deutscher has a talent for making scientific history read like an engrossing adventure... I recommend this intelligent and engaging book to anyone seeking an introduction to the relationship between language, thought, and culture."
--Margery Lucas, "PsycCritiques" "This fabulously interesting book describes an area of intellectual history replete with brilliant leaps of intuition and crazy dead-ends. Guy Deutscher, who combines enthusiasm with scholarly pugnacity, is a vigorous and engaging guide to it... A remarkably rich, provocative, and intelligent work."-- Sam Leith, "The Sunday Times" (UK) "A brilliant account of linguistic research over two centuries... As befits a book about language, this inspiring amalgam of cultural history and science is beautifully written."-- Clive Cookson, "Financial Times" (UK) "A delight to read."--Christopher Howse, "The Spectator" (UK) "Fascinating and well written... Deutscher's scholarly and eloquent prose made the book an enjoyable read and I learnt lots of great anecdotes along the way."--Alex Bellos, "The Guardian" (UK) "Deutscher writes as clearly and engagingly as can be... Will this study of language make you giddy? Oh, absolutely."--Craig Brown, "The Mail on Sunday" (UK) "Jaw-droppingly wonderful... A marvelous and surprising book. The ironic, playful tone at the beginning gradates into something serious that is never pompous, something intellectually and historically complex and yet always pellucidly laid out. It left me breathless and dizzy with delight."--Stephen Fry, presenter of "Stephen Fry in America," host of "QI," and author of "Moab Is My Washpot" "At once highly readable and thoroughly learned... Here is an important and original new history of the struggle to understand how language, culture, and thought are connected."--Joan Bybee, Distinguished Professor of Linguistics, University of New Mexico
Brilliantly surveys the differences words and grammar make between cultures.--Carlin Romano "The Chronicle of Higher Education "

The debate is ages old: Where does language come from? Is it an artifact of our culture or written in our very DNA? In recent years, the leading linguists have seemingly settled the issue: all languages are fundamentally the same and the particular language we speak does not shape our thinking in any significant way. Guy Deutscher says they're wrong. From Homer to Darwin, from Yale to the Amazon, and through a strange and dazzling history of the color blue, Deutscher argues that our mother tongues do indeed shape our experiences of the world. Audacious, delightful, and provocative, Through the Language Glass is destined to become a classic of intellectual discovery.
