Abstract:

Timorous tenderfoots, lackadaisical slouches, and closed-minded obscurants should avoid this fun and devious vocabulary book. Everyone else will delight in its blend of flabbergasting words, wacky quotes, and creative quizzes. Educator Phil Eisenhower has selected the words SAT and GRE takers love to hate-such as obdurate, edacious, and vulpine-and made them memorable. Realizing that people remember insults better than any other words, the author has phrased each word as a humorous barb. The result is a vocabulary reference that everyone-from gangsters to students to presidents-can use to insult and impress.
