Review quote

Let's face it, traveling around the world costs a bucketload of money. We'd all love to be globetrotters, but, unfortunately, the closest most people get to seeing foreign countries is movies and photos on Facebook. Thankfully, Jason Sacher is here to ease the pain. What's the next best thing to visiting exotic locales? Learning how to say Your mother is a cow! in Turkish (Annen big inek!). And, of course, telling someone Fuck your mother! in Burmese (Minn may minn lo!). As useful as it is hilarious, Sacher's How to Swear Around the World teaches readers all kinds of vulgar phrases in dozens of different languages. Feel free to call Expedia and curse out their airfare prices using any of the book's quotes.
