You'll be running your mouth like an Olympic sprinter after you've read this book.

The Little Book of Trash Talk takes a short-but-sweet look at trash talk, an art form that is a crucial aspect not only of modern sport but also of popular entertainment. This tiny tome explores the origins of trash talking and how it has mutated and spread in popularity across the decades, as well as looking at trash talking in the most unlikely of places (like 'sledging' in cricket). It's not all mean-spirited banter - The Little Book of Trash Talk highlights how wordplay in trash talk reflects the wit and ingenuity of the talker and aims to show that trash talking is not just the domain of a few select sportsmen, but is deployed by everyone from Winston Churchill to Liam Gallagher.

'I'll beat him so bad, he'll need a shoehorn to put his hat on.' - Muhammad Ali talking before his fight with Floyd Patterson in 1965, as seen on bbc.co.uk.
