Review:

'This is an entertaining work, rich in scatalogical and other forms of insult; it contains much material from the two world wars and the field of popular entertainment ... but maintains a fair degree of scholarly detachment'. - The Year's Work in English Studies

`A delightful dictionary to browse through.' - Sunday Times

`This dictionary can be read for the sheer fun of it - I read it on a rainy holiday and laughed constantly - but it is a useful book as well ... and like Mr. Partridge's dictionaries of slang ... will be indispensable.' - Paul Theroux

`This is for dipping, pottering and looking things up ... Much marvellous stuff here. I look forward to continuous pleasure.' - Punch
