Featuring life lessons from the master himself, as well as quotes and quips by some of history’s sarcastic greats, The Sarcasm Handbook (Skyhorse Publishing, June 6, 2017) teaches readers how to deflect stupidity and express their inner dissatisfaction with a keen sensibility, hushing subtlety, and wisecrack wit.

Included in these invaluable teachings are instructional chapters on:

  • Achieving the right tone
  • Sarcastic bastards in history
  • The greatest moments in sarcasm history
  • And more!

So pick up a copy today and start learning the art of disparagement through passive aggressiveness!
