2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intelligence is sexy. Good morning, dear students, and welcome to my favorite class: philology, or the love of words. For me, nothing is more seductive than a good word origin story. I can't get enough. I mean, have you ever wondered what the word "cocktail" has to do with drinks? Or whether "hussy" was always an insult? Or why Benedict got his very own egg recipe? These are the types of questions that keep me awake all night long. Whether you've been a straight-A follower of my YouTube channel or this is your first adventure in philology, I think that soon you'll be just as hot for words as I am! Are you ready for class to begin?"--Back cover
