Shit, this book is fascinating.--Elena Nicolaou A poppy, comprehensive look at an often taboo topic.--Reed Tucker Byrne makes a strong case.... Perhaps more than swearing's power to help one withstand pain or even bond, it's Byrne's revelations about swearing and gender that make me want to try just a little bit harder to curse.--Danielle Friedman An impressive catalogue of research showing how effing and blinding helps us deal with pain, bond with others, is associated with intelligence and makes us more inclined to trust each other.... A glorious, uplifting read.--Lucy Kellaway Byrne, who likes a good swear, relishes her subject and her study of its various forms--bodily, copulatory, excretory and slur based--is playfully astute.--Steven Carroll Emma Byrne unearths an unorthodox body of research to reveal how swearing helps reduce pain and anxiety and can even bring people together.... Fascinating. A chatty, humorously informative narrative that rummages through the science of bad language, grabbing at sociology, psychology, neuroscience and anthropology.--Hephzibah Anderson Swearing Is Good for You is an entertaining and often enlightening book.... Byrne's readers are sure to come away with a fresh appreciation of language at its most foul.
