"A scrupulous and absorbing survey. Its great virtue is to show that these issues are nothing new... This scholarly assiduousness, though, also makes him the ideal pilot through these contentious political-linguistic waters. If you want to know why more people are asking 'what's your pronoun?' then you (singular or plural) should read this book." -- Joe Moran - The New York Times Book Review
