Yetta Emmes and Kim Wilson Brandt. Other yiddish books you might enjoy. The New Joys of Yiddish: Completely Updated.

One doesn't have to be Jewish to recognize the words that have made their way into every fold of popular language: Chutzpah, Mensch, Tokhes, Mishmash, Nudge, Shtick, Schmaltzy, Schlep, Icky, and so on. Then there are phrases whose meaning and syntax are borrowed from Yiddish: "bite your tongue", "drop dead", "enough already", and "excuse the expression". This hilarious, concise guide includes chapters on the Basic Descriptions of People (the good, the bad, the ugly, and the goofy), the Fine Art of Cursing, Juicy Words and Phrases, Exclamations and Exasperations, and the Fine Art of Blessing.

Comments:

Mautaxe
This book is not quite the drek of it's title, but it's not a great guide to impolite Yiddish, and the author is not emmes. Her explanations are not always on the
mark and when you are using another language to be insulting, it's very important to know the exact meaning and power of the words you are using.
You could read Wex's Just say Nu or go back to the source The Joys of Yiddish.
My bubbe was dead, my zaide would not teach me these words, but my late mother and her friends used these words. This book does not give you a warm feeling and since its explanations are sometimes wrong, I would not use it as a guide; you could get in trouble.
Deodorant for your language
Admittedly I know nothing of Yiddish, so I can't judge it technically, but I can say that this book is a lot of fun. It's a very colorful language and the words are grouped by subject, making it really easy to pick out a few to use. My main goal is to interest my kids in the language and picking out and using fun words is a great way to do it.

I had hoped for something more than this skinny, undersized volume. to spin an old gag, "Life is a drek sandwich. Sometimes you get more bread... sometimes you get more drek." Not too much drek in this sandwich. For instance I wanted a definition of "Yutz." I had to go to Google to find it. And a couple of other terms that have more than one meaning left those alternatives unlisted.
But it's better than no sandwich at all. And I found other volumes I might invesetigate later, if I find myself in need of such diversity.
In brief, I got the Drek I paid for, but not much else.
Nakora
I have not had time to read this book, but I am sure when I do, it will be a good one to add to my library.

The book brought back memories of my parents!

If you grew up with Yiddish speaking relatives, this is great. Even if you didn't it's still hysterical.

Yiddish is a really funny language. For those of you not familiar with it, it is a hodge-podge of Hebrew and German. It was a language that united Jews by giving them a common language in Europe and Russia.

A lot of the vernacular, expressions, words, etc. have made it into the American style of English language.

I laughed my rear end off with this one.

Good purchase, good price!
