The dedicated Sarcastic do not care whether the victim or audience “gets it” and to produce a truly resonant and complex sarcasm is a pleasure in itself to be savored in solitude. Nevertheless Dorfman is to be commended for taking on a task that many experts would regard as impossible.

Synopsis

From the author of the bestselling Snark series comes the premiere guide to satire, sneering, jeering, and mockery in their finest forms. A surviving knight of many a verbal joust, Larry Dorfman has become an expert at backhanded sass and cathartic banter.

Featuring life lessons from the master himself, as well as quotes and quips by some of history’s sarcastic greats, The Sarcasm Handbook 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 chapters on achieving the right tone, sarcastic bastards in history, as well as scenarios depicting some of the greatest moments in sarcasm.

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