Overview

The Snark Handbook: Insult Edition: Comebacks, Taunts, and Effronteries by Lawrence Dorfman


Author Lawrence Dorfman claims: “I love it when someone insults me. That means that I don’t have to be nice anymore.” In this latest incarnation of his bestselling series, Dorfman is in delicious form, dishing it out without any real consequences. The sharp-witted buyer (and that’s you, my friend) may be wondering right about now: “Hey, how is this book any different from the first? That was full of insults, too.” Yes, but these insults are different, and the author’s retorts and taunts are so much more vitriolic than in the previous book.

Readers will find more material to actually use in day-to-day life, including streamlined instructions on when and how to mock your peers; how to use retorts with your spouse and children; and how our late, great ancestors used insults throughout history. This is not a mere collection of quotations. Dorfman speaks directly to his audience, serving as teacher, ringleader, and historian. After all, not all insults are snarky, and not all snark is insulting. It takes a certain genius to define and navigate the fine line between idiotic commentary and intelligent snark, a genius that has been isolated and packaged with aplomb in the new Snark Handbook: Insult Edition.
