Castigated in his time for breaching such American conversational taboos as religion, sex, censorship, and racism, Lenny Bruce proved to be a pioneer in exposing hypocrisies, the impact of which still echoes on both sides of censorship controversies. This book and soon-to-be-released private tapes are sure to bring the extent of Bruce's influence into sharp focus. Photo insert.

Review: How to Talk Dirty and Influence People

User Review  - Thierry Sagnier - Goodreads

Well hell.... How can you not like, love and respect Lenny? Seminal comic, revolutionary, pretty good writer and so far ahead of his time. I just wish he hadn't been a junkie who died waaaay too early. Read full review

Review: How to Talk Dirty and Influence People

User Review  - Brenda Schenck - Goodreads

This is not what I'd call a beach book. I'm sure it's written very much as he would deliver his routine on stage. And it fills my square "Published the year you were born" on my SPL Summer Book Bingo card. Read full review
