We all know what frak, popularized by television's cult hit Battlestar Galactica, really means. But what about feck? Or ferkin? Or foul--as in FUBAR, or "Fouled Up Beyond All Recognition"? In a thoroughly updated edition of The F-Word, Jesse Sheidlower offers a rich, revealing look at the f-bomb and its illimitable uses. Since the fifteenth century, no other word has been adapted, interpreted, euphemized, censored, and shouted with as much ardor or force; imagine Dick Cheney telling Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy to "go damn himself" on the Senate floor--it doesn't have quite the same impact as what was really said. Sheidlower cites this and other notorious examples throughout history, from the satiric sixteenth-century poetry of James Cranstoun to the bawdy parodies of Lord Rochester in the seventeenth century, to more recent uses by Ernest Hemingway, Jack Kerouac, Ann Sexton, Norman Mailer, Liz Phair, Anthony Bourdain, Junot Diaz, Jenna Jameson, Amy Winehouse, Jon Stewart, and Bono (whose use of the word at the Grammys nearly got him fined by the FCC). Collectively, these references and the more than one hundred new entries they illustrate double the size of The F-Word since its previous edition. Thousands of added quotations come from newly available electronic databases and the resources of the OED, expanding the range of quotations to cover British, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, Irish, and South African uses in addition to American ones. Thus we learn why a fugly must hone his or her sense of humor, why Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau muttered "fuddle duddle" in the Commons, and why Fanny Adams is so sweet. A fascinating introductory essay explores the word's history, reputation, and changing popularity over time. and a new Foreword by comedian, actor, and author Lewis Black offers readers a smart and entertaining take on the book and its subject matter. Oxford dictionaries have won renown for their expansive, historical approach to words and their etymologies. The F-Word offers all that and more in an entertaining and informative look at a word that, while now largely accepted as an integral part of the English language, still confounds, provokes, and scandalizes.

Wer Kinder hat, weiß, dass Kuscheltiere und eine Gute-Nacht-Geschichte nicht immer helfen. Allzu oft bleibt ›Schlaf, Kindchen, schlaf‹ ein frommer Wunsch. Dann hockt man auf der Bettkante und könnte – bei aller Liebe – heulen vor Wut. ›Verdammte Scheiße, schlaf ein!‹ zeigt die ungeschminkte Wahrheit und ist dabei so komisch, dass man sich die Verzweiflung von der Seele lacht. »Muss noch immer lachen und weinen – ein scheißgutes Buch.« Julia Franck

This book is about the work/life balance and the conflicting messages women receive about how they are supposed to live. It is also about the state of feminism as a concept today feminism has become a dirty word, and the term feminist is now often used to insult and belittle women. The authors describe the ways in which, despite the feminist and sexual revolutions, women are still covertly marginalised the work environment is structured for male bodies, with no default arrangement in place to support pregnancy or motherhood (or fatherhood) in the workplace. Flexible work hours are still considered to be special circumstances, rather than the norm. Furthermore, women are still bearing the burden of housework, raising children and family work. The authorsaddress these issues in a light-hearted, amusing yet no-nonsense manner. The tone is extremely positive, even when the content arouses fury and frustration at the ridiculous inequity taking place under our noses every day. In fact the book deals with a whole lot of f words apart from feminismfriendship, family, fathers, fun and freaking out about how much pressure we put on ourselves to be perfect.

"A sneaky--charming, consistently engrossing--introduction to linguistics." --New York Times Book Review Everyone swears. Only the rare individual can avoid ever letting slip an expletive. And yet, we ban the words from television and insist that polite people excise them from their vocabularies. That's a fucking shame. Not only is swearing colorful, fun, and often powerfully apt, as linguist and cognitive scientist Benjamin K. Bergen shows us, the study of it can provide a new window onto how our brains process language. How can patients left otherwise speechless after a stroke still shout out "Goddamn!"? Why did Pop Francis say "fuck" in the middle of a speech? When did a cock cease to be a rooster? Why is "crap" vulgar when "poo" is just childish? And what are we doing when we give someone the bird? What the F? Let me effing tell you.
