Let's face it, your average Chinese will not teach you how to swear in his language, it just doesn't work that way in the middle kingdom. Luckily for you, this wonderful book contains everything you need to know about swearing in Chinese, after all, swear words do tell us a lot about a certain culture and this book delivers just that. Want to know why so many Chinese insults have the word egg in them? How Internet censorship has affected the language? This book is what you need. I strongly recommend it to anyone who's currently studying Chinese, knowing a few insults can definitely help you out on your next trip to China.
