The F***ing History of Swearing, Paperback / softback Book


This book is a bold and expressively designed treasure trove of information about the history of swearing.

With its bold and expressive design, The F***ing History of Swearing is an outstanding visual feast. Swearing is and always has been regarded as undereducated, obscene, rude and profane in society.

Yet despite your mum's best efforts, cussing is mainstream.

It's even more than that, it's an integrated part of our culture.

The number of times we swear is huge. Most often it occurs naturally and you would have to force yourself not to swear.

We don't think twice about shouting the word 'FUCK' if we hurt ourselves or miss the bus in the morning.

It just happens automatically and that's where it gets interesting.
