Certainly good - but somehow not quite as wonderful as the original
14 September 2013
I was in on Liffs from the very beginning, having first encountered the concept in the form of the "Oxtail English Dictionary" in the "Not The 1982 Calendar". At first sight anyone new to Liffs might think that "The Deeper Meaning of Liff" would be the ideal book to buy, since it is essentially the original book with a lot of new Liffs added - but political correctness has been at work, and somehow for me it lacks the fearless edginess of the original. Still, the new ones are generally still of a high standard, so it is very much worth buying. However if you are new to Liffs, I would recommend getting hold of the original "Meaning of Liff".
