Media Reviews
Stone had done a masterful job of rendering Latin phrases into palatable English. His Latin reference work is beautifully laid out and easy to accesss. The choice of entries introduces professional terms in style: neatly, succintly, and gracefully.
-ARBA 2000
It provides more specialized vocabularies that other handbooks of Latin phrases...and is the only one to provide a separate English to Latin index and a list of abbreviations...it will be helpful to public and undergraduate libraries.
