First of all these insults have nothing to do with gender. Everybody can use them as they see fit. The layout of the book is well done and makes the insults easier to navigate. The intelligence insults are the ones I find the most hilarious. Subtlety and back-handedness at their finest.

An insult for every occasion, including book reviews--

You'll need twice the brains to qualify as a half-witted reader of this book!

You are so dense, the light from a reader's lamp bends around you!

Moving on to your family, dear reader, your mama's so fat, she sells shade to read books in!

Have a tart response? Too bad--I refuse to enter a battle of wits with and unarmed person!

If you are a man, and you need to know insults, this book is for you! Mamatas traverses the world for ways to insult your antagonists' manhood. I'm impressed by the inclusion of the fairly obscure goof.

If you don't take things too personally, this is a funny little book that's part of a larger series of "every (blank) should know" books.

Kudos to the author for compiling a list of insults and putting them as a book. But seriously, the world doesn't need this.

Short and funny. Just a little interlude on vacation. Some good jokes, but too many inappropriate ones.
