Euphemania, by Ralph Keyes

OK, I've read enough language sites to take virtually everything in books like this with a grain of salt. However, this was less academic and more 'fun' in terms of why we euphemize the things we do, and how that has changed over the centuries. That I liked. Also, I liked the random family or in-group phrases that Keyes included.
