This is the sequel to "The Superior Person's Book of Words" , the most delightful lexicon since Ambrose Bierce compiled "The Devil's Dictionary". Like its predecessor, it's more fun than the infernal abecedarian classic because its definitions are strictly on the up-and-up--it's Bowler's usage suggestions and philosophical-etymological speculations (e.g., on gymnophobia: "Fear of nudity. But--fear of "whose" nudity? One's own or someone else's? And what has this got to do with gymnastics? And why?") that goose out the giggles and several roundly reboant (look it up) belly-laughs as well.
