NON-FICTION READING SUGGESTIONS The Adventure of English MELVYN BRAGG ‘ The companion book to the documentary series of the same name broadcast on SBS in 2005 ’ The Adventure of English is the companion book to the documentary series of the same name that was broadcast on SBS in 2005. Bragg recounts the story of the English language, from its Germanic roots through to the global language of today.

An accessible and friendly introduction to a fascinating subject. 35
