About The Book

The bestselling book on the art of the insult is back and it’s more blasphemous than ever. Author and snark connoisseur Lawrence Dorfman does his absolute worst, dishing out hundreds of clever insults for all situations and occasions. From careful instructions on how and when to throw a verbal punch to an expertly curated collection of the best insults in history, this uproarious little book has everything you need to become the ultimate slanderer. Every page is packed with delightfully mean one-liners for swiftly scorning your foes:

“You’re not yourself today. I noticed the improvement immediately.”
“You started at the bottom, and it’s been downhill ever since.”
“His men would follow him anywhere but it was only out of morbid curiosity.”
“Perhaps your whole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.”
“You fill a much-needed gap.”

Complete with charming black and white drawings that complement the book’s verbal spars, The Snark Handbook: Insult Edition proves that the pen truly is mightier than the sword, and will ensure you’re never again without the perfect quip or comeback.
