Review of 'Holy shit: a brief history of swearing' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Fantastic book. I learned about a lot more than just swearing: that the Greeks and Romans had drastically different ideas about sexuality than we do (ok to fuck any gender as long as you're the one penetrating), that "zounds" comes from "god's wounds", and more. A great read, highly recommended.
