Nothing is censored in Dirty Greek. This book presents cool things to say for all casual situation: shopping, parties, nightclubs, sporting events, and even romance and sex. There are sweet words to entice a local beauty to watch the sunset on Santorini and less-than-businesslike rebuffs for overly persistent street vendors. It contains casual expressions for describing ancient architecture that makes one sound smart and cool and also offers enough insults and swear words to offend every person in Greece – without even mentioning that Italy is better at soccer or that the Turks brew tastier coffee.
