Doesn't really teach you how to talk dirty. Check the bibliography: wikipedia and websites. You can find most of this stuff without the book. It misses good insults and sex talk that you'll probably be looking for elsewhere. Also much of the slang is region specific, even if it doesn't say so. The sideboxes are fun to read and specific culturally specific. Nice read, not a great resource/reference.
