11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Christopher Denne on 30 Nov 2004
Format: Paperback
It's a corker (an excellent person or thing; something that closes a discussion, from the notion of putting a cork in it), a cracker, a whizz, a snozzler (if you're a New Zealander), even a piss-cutter (North American, naturally) or any one of numerous alternatives, all dated, located and explained.
It's also a must for anyone interested in the development of language. It covers everything, from The Body and its Parts (many, many words, some guaranteed to leave you gobsmacked (1985, British)) to Abstract Qualities and States. And it's well arranged by subject in the form of a thesaurus, with a convenient dictionary at the back.
But a word of warning: start to browse, and you'll find it unputdownable.

Useful, but not very easy to find your way around - simple alphabetical like most dictionaries would have been better.

Format: Paperback
I was hoping to find a dictionary that explains in simple language what the slang means. This one definitely doesn't. It mainly gives the origin of the word and an old example from sixties or something. Also there are no definitions. Not very useful really, because it doesn't help to understand what the slang means.

This title had practically everything I expected in a dictionary of modern (and not-so-modern) slang terms.
