Plot / Summary
Do You Know Your Subculture Slang?

"If your house hasn't been looted yet, it will be, so put everything you can in the bank and make mule characters carry the rest."

"Surely a duck kicker would not disturb ducks this old?"

"She will act as his beard when his parents come over and at office parties."

Do you ever feel like people are talking, but you have no idea what they're saying? Do you ever feel like you don't belong? Then you need Talk the Talk. This handy little book is your guide to the unique vernacular of 65 subcultures from hip hop to punk rock, from surfers to hunters, with more than 3,500 slang terms.

Author Luc Reid introduces each subculture and its key characteristics to give you an informative insider's peek at culture and diversity in America--plus he includes warnings when certain terms should be used with caution so that you don't commit any faux pas.
