“A Word Nerd’s (wet?) dream come true.”
Review by John George
This is a very “thick” book, and that’s a good thing. It discusses the overlap between sports & sexuality, from the standpoint of the double entendre of sports terminology. It is very exhaustive, both for the sports covered, and of course the terminology peculiar to each sport.
It also includes an exhaustive list of sexual slang & euphemisms, as an appendix. Lots of fun if you’re into sports, sex, or the fun you can have with the English language. (The book is also very nearly technically perfect for spelling, research &c.) All in all, very highly recommended.
