How to talk dirty and influence people - in Chinese!

Are you looking to learn the Chinese only a native speaker knows? Niubi! will teach you the colorful vernacular phrases used by Chinese people of all ages in a wide variety of situations, including flirting and dating, fighting and partying, and all the swear words you'll ever need. Learn why many Chinese insults involve turtle eggs, how code words referring to Internet censorship have evolved, multiple names for body parts your textbook skipped, and how they've perfected the art of everyday abuse and insults. 

For complete novices (Niubi! newbies), intermediate students of Mandarin Chinese, or just anyone who enjoys cursing in other languages, this hilariously illustrated guide is packed with irreverent anecdotes, mini cultural lessons, and contextual explanations. So whether you're planning a trip to Beijing, flirting with an online acquaintance from Shanghai, or just want to start a fight in Chinatown - Niubi! will ensure that nothing you say is lost in translation.
