Braccae tuae aperiunturn,
This review is from: Latin for All Occasions: From Cocktail-Party Banter to Climbing the Corporate Ladder to Online Dating-- Everything You'll Ever Need to Say in Perfect Latin (Paperback)
Latin for all occasion is a great humour book even if you don’t care about Latin. The book attempts to give you the ability to converse in Latin in every aspect of everyday life. For example, you want to have an affair? Cut a deal? Tell someone their fly is open (as the title of this review does) you can do so in Latin. The humour in this book comes, not so much from the Latin itself but rather the English phrases H Beard decides is necessary for everyday life. From WASP country clubs to family reunions, pretentious Restaurants or finding cheez wiz at the supermarket, you can do it in Latin! It is perfect for a quick read and is consistently funny and unique. The perfect gift or coffee table book to show off at parties (plus now you can tell you guests all about it in Latin!).
