You’ve read the excerpts. You’ve heard the hype. You’ve seen the stupid Word of the Week widget in the sidebar for what, four months now? And let’s be honest, it hasn’t been a word a week; it’s been more like a word a month. We said the book was coming. We said it was going to be available here, there, and everywhere, in this and that format, and then…nothing.
Where’s the damn book?

The Lazy Bastard Guide to Mandarin: An Abridged Corpse of Axioms, Vocabulary, and Their Purported Meanings is an irreverent take on language in the modern age, based on the author’s experience in Asia. Loosely satirizing the context and structure of a pocket-sized phrase book, the Lazy Bastard Guide to Mandarin describes a world where most expats are called “asspats,” and suggests the best way to deal with the Chinese penchant for pushing in line is to push back.
