My only experience with Ambrose Bierce was in 10th grade, and my memory of him was that he was easier to read than both O Henry and Poe. I believe I read 2 of his stories, but remember them not at all. Sol Luckman seems to have experienced a greater depth in his governmental conditioning (public schools I would expect) than did I.

So when I picked up the Angel’s Dictionary, I immediately wanted to familiarize myself with his Devil’s Dictionary, and since it can be found for free on the net, a co

The Angel’s Dictionary is a sardonic antidote to the trite and asinine slogans and catchphrases – the basic language - of Big Brother’s thought-control system. On one level, it’s light and witty comic relief, and beyond the playful satire, it is scathingly accurate! If you’re in need of some conscious, fun, and thought-provoking wordplay then you might start with The Angel’s Dictionary. Warning: reader may experience symptoms of higher consciousness, greater clarity, and general merriment.

Irreverent in its honesty and take-no-prisoners approach, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY: A SPIRITED GLOSSARY FOR THE LITTLE DEVIL IN YOU is an honest appraisal of words in terms of today’s sensibilities. Sol Luckman has picked up where writers like Mark Twain and Ambrose Bierce left off over a century ago, identifying new associations for words and phrases to match what they really represent today. Some entries result in a genuine laugh while others engend

This dictionary was hilarious, had to read it twice. I can definitely see myself using these meanings at a social function lol. Would recommend this book to anyone who's up for a couple of laughs 5/5

I've never had so many belly laughs in my entire life. It is absolutely witty, "spot-on" and I LOVE IT. I find that the Angel's Dictionary (Devilish as it may be) adds a quality of "lightness" in bringing about such laughter. I do sincerely feel we may each gain by experiencing more and more laughs in meeting the existing chaos WITHIN our space time. Keep them up, Sol !!!

Funny, strange and over-the-top, this satirical "dictionary" is something you do not want to miss. A fantastic exploration of culture and the basics of hilarity, The Angel's Dictionary's savage, raw humor may be devastating to some and fascinating to others.

The definitions are really good, ranging from sophisticated-but-funny to flat out bizarre, and the book always knows how to catch one off guard, IN A GOOD WAY. This book is excellent.
