Appreciation: “No index…, no table of contents…, no order”

“There is no index at the back, no table of contents at the front, and the subjects covered are not arranged in alphabetical, or any other, order. A hotchpotch is a hotchpotch, but not being able to locate or then re-find anything slowly drove me insane with fury. ”

That’s one of the delightful passages in the “Indexes Reviewed” section of issue number 3, of volume 33 — the September 2015 issue — of the journal The Indexer. the international journal of indexing.
