Overview

Author Lawrence Dorfman claims: “I love it when someoneinsults me. That means that I don’t have to be nice anymore.”In this latest incarnation of his bestselling series, Dorfman is indelicious form, dishing it out without any real consequences. Thesharp-witted buyer (and that’s you, my friend) may be wonderingright about now: “Hey, how is this book any different from thefirst? That was full of insults, too.” Yes, but these insults are different(literally), and the author’s retorts and taunts are so much morevitriolic 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 yourpeers; how to use retorts with your spouse and children; and howour late, great ancestors used insults throughout history. This isnot a mere collection of quotations. Dorfman speaks directly to hisaudience, serving as teacher, ringleader, and historian. After all, notall insults are snarky, and not all snark is insulting. It takes a certaingenius to define and navigate the fine line between idiotic commentaryand intelligent snark, a genius that has been isolated andpackaged with aplomb in the new Snark Handbook: Insult Edition.
