This beautifully packaged and accessible guide is the perfect companion to learning the phrases of London's East End and the interesting origins behind Cockney Rhyming Slang - a language first invented as a secret code among the thieves of London's underworld. Organized thematically, rather than alphabetically, this book allows the reader to gain a full and comprehensive understanding of how to use a range of cockney phrases in each given scenario. Covering all the popular, traditional cockney phrases, as well as some more modern additions that aren't as well known, hundreds of sayings are featured and explained. So, if you're gagging to get your Hampstead Heath into popular reference at its most fascinating, pull up a Vanity Fair, pour your self a cup of Rosie Lee and get stuck into this highly enter taining Captain Cook.
