Isaac Asimov's "Words From the Myths"

(Note that these are only the Greek and Roman myths.) I had read this in High School, then recently got a hankering to read it again. It's long out of print, but used copies are cheap on Amazon. A wonderful explanation of the origins of many English words and figures of speech .
