An extraordinary true tale of madness, genius, and obsession about two remarkable men who created history with the writing of the Oxford English Dictionary. The Compilation of the Oxford English Dictionary began in 1857 and was one of the most ambitious and revolutionary projects ever undertaken. Professor James Murray took on the challenge of creating the most comprehensive dictionary ever compiled but knew that it would take him and his team over a century to compile all known definitions.
