Product Description

Product Description

This text brims over with stinging comments, verbal face slappings and subtle insults for dealing with every kind of person.

About the Author

Mike Blake was forced to resort to humour when faced with school bullies in his younger years. Being smaller than average in size he developed a repartee of one-liners and put-downs which enabled him to defeat larger more dim-witted opponents. His victorious experiences led him to develop a fascination for the history of comedy and humorous insults. Mike is a freelance writer living in Brighton, Sussex.

Whatever this book is, a book of insults (with or without style) it certainly isn't.
It's unreadable on KIndle and while some of the quips or quotes are amusing enough I struggled to find one that I hadn't come across a dozen times before.
I doubt this book would survive a prosecution under the Trades Descriptions Act!

An amusing small book. However in a few cases the graphics dont work well on the Kindle and it is hard to view.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pick up and put down 26 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although a good deal of American content this little book has some very amusing quotes that you may, or may not, wish to re-quote at the appropriate time and opportunity. An insight into the sense of humour of many of our 'greats' from the world of Politics and Entertainment is also interesting. All in all, well worth the 99p Kindle version

A quick read and lots of fun. One that can be dipped into again to fill a few moments with an easy read.
