Has anyone else read it or anything else by Lakoff?
A better place to start is Lakoff's article The Contemporary Theory of Metaphor. It dates from 1992, but it summarizes all the important ideas in the original book plus many new and interesting discoveries. You can find it in Andrew Ortony's anthology Metaphor and Thought (2nd edition), but it's also available free at the link I posted earlier in the paragraph.
I can still recommend 'Metaphors We Live By', as a short book that will change how you experience language and thought, and 'Women, Fire ..' as a more scholarly presentation of the view of the world behind it.
