Gareth Murphy The Language Instinct

This book is really getting interesting right about now (chapter 6). Not to say that it's not all great, but it's very technical at times in the earlier chapters and it's been a tough read so far (although still thoroughly enjoyable). It's one of those books that makes you smile by taking seemingly obvious examples of things (in this case, language) that you're surrounded by every day and casting it in a completely new light, setting off that feeling of something finally 'clicking' with you endlessly.
