Sketches a brief history of swear words and creates something of a field guide to their types and usages, from the common threats to the portmanteau intensifier. Equal parts informative and hilarious, this little volume is a must-have for anyone looking to more successfully wield their expletives, be it in writing or in everyday speech.
