Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

"Classified by subject-- from 'Big Heads' through 'Nudists' to 'Squelches'-- this tongue-in-cheeck reference romp is guaranteed to put the right retort in the right head at the right time." --(Dr. Frederick Shroyer, Los Angeles Herald-Examiner)

"When I am not rolling on the floor I am asking myself where Safian found all those insults to compile." --(Wes Lawrence, Cleveland Plain Dealer)

"Ought to come in handy, sooner or later, for anybody." --(Chicago Daily News)

"Too many bright sayings occur to us the day after they've needed. With this book you'll be fortified with a whole arsenal of remarks, ranging from mild to caustic, depending upon the need, to use in disposing of bores or squelching the quarrelsome and pompous." --(Sioux Falls Argus-Leader)

"Here is an amazing anthology of insults and near-insults that should delight the heart of any sales manager who'd like to communicate with his salesman more forcefully-- or add zest to his speeches." --(The Sales Executive)

"The most intriguing book of the year." --(Art Goodwin, WHEN-TV)

"My girls have trouble remembering one jot of their homework. I'll bet they can recite that book from cover to cover." --(Jim Bishop, King Features Syndicate)

"Just what the doctor ordered. Memorize enough of these and you can be the wit of the party." (John Barkham, Saturday Review Syndicate)

This book was somewhat funny and some of the insults were pretty witty. However, because of the age of the book many of the insults were quite dated.

Good to read if you're bored and just want to laugh at something.
