Mark Forsyth is the author of The Etymologicon, the London Sunday Times number one bestseller based on his “Inky Fool blog, which contained daily articles on words, rhetoric, poetry, but most of all etymology and the strange and often ludicrous stories behind familiar words.”

At TEDxHousesofParliament this past June, Mr. Forsyth told the story behind the ascension of President from demeaning placeholder to a title of stature.
