Book News Annotation:

Peckham, a software engineer, provides a fun dictionary of slang and pop culture terms drawn from user-submitted definitions on the website of the same name, which he created. As the site boasts one million definitions, the ones chosen for the book were based on their wit, humor, and accuracy. Better known words such as blog, bling bling, grunge, and cool are listed, as well as others such as retrosexual, scooby doos, and cadbury. Some definitions are humorous, like the one for computer science: "The study of making porn more readily available, to make it easier and faster to download, and to make what you're looking for easier to find."

About the Author

Aaron Peckham was a computer science student in 1999 when he launched a Web site to compare urban slang used by university students in different parts of California. Soon the site garnered hits-and new definitions-from around the world. Immensely popular, urbandictionary.com has been recognized by media such as NPR's weekend edition of All Things Considered, BBC News Online, New York Daily News, Sydney Morning Herald, and Maxim, and it has even been used by a judge to decipher rap lyrics and on Rush Limbaugh's radio show to define a word.
