About the Book

But you'd better watch what you say ...
Do you remember when people were "dishonest" not "ethically disoriented", "drunk" not "chemically inconvenienced", "fat" not "horizontally challenged" or "old" not "experientially enhanced"?
You do? then you must forget such political incorrectnesses - and learn the language of the future. Only with this comprehensive, exhaustively researched reference work can you find out exactly what you can say, what you can't say, who says, and why.
Read this book and never again will you refer to: the ugly bald shoplifter who is a sadomasochistic wino.
You will be politically correct and say: the cosmetically different, follicularly challenged nontraditional shopper is a differently pleasured, substance abuse survivor!
Whether you're oppressor or victim (or both) The Official Politically Correct Dictionary and Handbook is essential-and highly entertaining-reading.
