PRAISE FOR"DEPRAVED ENGLISH"AND"INSULTING ENGLISH"

"Read them, learn them, use them in everyday conversation, and salvage our linguistic heritage!"--"Maxim"

"A book on language that you can read on subway, bus, and plane--though you have to be ready for surprised looks when you laugh out loud or give little yelps of joy. . . . If someone is majoring in English, give him or her this book. Give it to your randy grandma."--Frank McCourt, author of"Angela's Ashes"and"'Tis"

"An invaluable and cleverly worked vade mecum for those millions of us who (a) are fascinated by sex and (b) enjoy insulting people. No intelligent home should be without it."--Simon Winchester, author of"The Professor and the Madman"
