    It is important to recognize that this is a better gift book than one a person sits down to read cover to cover. It offers a brief overview and only a few phrases or words for each language. It is not a comprehensive reference book or even a very educational cultural/language book. It's something you'd give to a friend as a gag that they'd leave out, probably in the bathroom, for guests to skim. My biggest complaint (and the reason for a 2-star rating) was the inconsistent pronunciation guide. I [...]

    Robert Vanderplankin kansainvälinen haukkumasanakirja olisi voinut olla kattavampikin. Tämän Oxfordin yliopiston kieltentutkijan antropologinen katsaus nimittelytapoihin on osin hauskaa luettavaa, ja liikkeelle lähdetään antiikista.Toisaalta eleitäkin on eritelty, mutta varsin suppeasti. Suomalainen osuus on toimitettu ihan kotimaassa. Kirosanoja ja nimittelyjä on perin suppeasti.Oudolta vaikuttaa suomi-osuuden lisääminen skandinaavisiin kieliin! Ruotsalaiselle kirjan mukaan karkeaa on [...]

    I didn't really expect anything besides a few laughs from this book, and I got them. The book is divided in sections based on the language discussed, and the main idea gets really repetitive after a few languages you are not familiar with or are not interested in. If you're looking for a deep insight into the culture of insults, you need to skip this, but then again its quite heavy and uninteresting for the casual reader as well.

    A book for some laughters, and some languange knowledge. But I guess it's hard to practise those curses because it takes time to memorize the hardly recognizable other languages.

    Disappointing. Perhaps insults without context are bound to be somewhat flat, but this is a shallow survey and not as fun or informative as I might have hoped.
