Whether in family life, social interactions, or business negotiations, half the people in the world speak more than one language every day. Yet many myths persist about bilingualism and bilinguals. In a lively and entertaining book, an international authority on bilingualism explores the many facets of life with two or more languages.

MEDIA REVIEWS
What may not be apparent to the non-specialist is the extent to which Grosjean masters the entire body of scholarly literature on bilingualism produced during the past 100 years... It is worth having at one's fingertips the unpretentiously presented, solidly researched facts and figures in this gentle, humorous, civilized book. -- Mela Sarkar * Montreal Gazette *
The personal dimension of the book contributes to its readability and vitality. Grosjean succeeds in impressing on his readers the need to demystify bilingualism and seek ways in which to encourage linguistic diversity. -- Kerstin Hoge * Times Literary Supplement *
Bilingual: Life and Reality...is a readable, informative, and emotionally satisfying work... The book is a gift. -- Barbara Zurer Pearson * Language *
