Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
More than 4000 euphemisms pertaining to body parts, bathrooms and other blush-inducing subjects are provided in this reference, a guide for those who prefer to pussyfoot around treacherous conversational terrain. (May)
The first edition was 1983. Not only fun, but of considerable cultural significance (see e.g. entry for Nixon). Some 4,000 words and phrases are arranged by subject and listed alphabetically within each subject. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
