Book Summary of Beep You! You! Beep Hole Where and when do you swear? Why do you think you swear? If you don't, why don't you? What if your tongue slips out at the wrong place at the wrong time? This book present the reader with a new perspective: of understanding human and social behaviour through swearwords and slurs used by people. It tries to make sense of swearwords spoken across the length and breadth of India, differences and similarities with other societies, and finally attempts to make sense of the aroma and aesthetics in ugly, distasteful, and sexist words. If you are addicted to swearing and it affects how people see you, you need to read this book. even if you think your addiction goes well with your self-image you better read this book. if you don't have this addiction yet you swear you should read this book. if you do not swear and find cusswords abhorring you must read book. if neither of above applies to you, well...eh just %$#@ off.

It is Written after a thorough research on slangs history . You'll definitely laugh throughout the book reading
The book contains separate sections of slangs , idioms and bad proverbs used in daily life belonging to different states.
The last section is very useful cause it has state wise slangs and mini poems with meaning .
Otherwise the book is must read for youth.
I recommend this.
Do I like the creeping up of crass cussing in Indian public domain - No, it's making us all more juvenile by imitating popular media (esp Bollywood) which caters to the lowest-common-denominator. Do I use cuss-words myself - yes, I most definitely do, but don't feel the need to justify it nor use it as a way to sound macho-er than I am (that late-school early-college phase is long past).
The book would benefit from (1) better proofreading and editing, (2) higher quality language (but oh well, it still beats Chetan Bhagat trope), and (3) a more genuine and less amused outline for those who are trapped in incessant and compulsive swearing.
By the way, don't expect to edify those who are repulsed by swearing - they will think of you as even more uncouth and defensive.
Anyhow, full marks to the author for guts and ingenuity.
