I'll admit it, I'm a tech dork. I work for an Internet company and this book is perfect for tag and signature lines for email. Although on a more serious note the definitions found here are not the dictionary definitions but the definitions that modern day society has reflected upon them. While a word, item, or identification for something may mean one thing in the dicitonary we tend to stereotype or re-clasify it in our times as something completly different. Read the exerpts for some good examples. Whil the book was compiled of pieces written back in the turn of the 20th centurey a lot of the sarcastic or sardonic definitions still hold true. Definatly an interseting book.
