Great Party Starter or Stopper
This book is not for everyone. Those that are offended by the F word will be appalled. However, if you are considering buying this book I assume that you are not and that you have friends that are not. It is the definitive book on the origin and derivation of many of the uses and contractions etc. of the word. The forward to the book is delightful too. I have the earlier edition and bought this one for a friend. I found that is was updated with even more F words added. It is always a great hit at my parties and now my guests insist on looking at it each time they visit!!! Enjoy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

We bought this book because so many of us like to use the F-word, but don't really know its history or all of its uses. This is actually a serious, scholarly approach to the history, uses and application of that four-letter word we all know and love...or love to hate. I would recommend it to anyone who is not easily offended or who likes to curse! My friends and I are treating it as a word-a-day book and texting each other a new sentence every day. The first part of the book is a history and the second part of the book is an A to Z encyclopedia of words, phrases and abbreviations/acromnyms. Great fun! I bought several copies as gifts for friends and relatives. What that says about me....? Not sure!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This 'F' Deserves an 'A'...
Like much of pop-culture, we think we know the scoop, but do we really understand the 'whole' scoop? The F-Word brilliantly dissects the taboo word we all are familiar with, and have thought of using as an adjective - if not uttered outright - bringing to light the historical basis, conception and growth of this powerful yet simple four letter word. Covering the gamut from it's common slang tonality and associated primal inference, to it's literary usage and power as a legal acronym, the F-Word enlightens. This book is 'f-ing' guaranteed to make the reader 'profanely' wiser!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
