  REVIEWS     Publisher's Weekly   June 22, 2009   “...a tongue-in-cheek guide to achieving vigilante justice for relationships gone bad... Nagorski handles all the angles, taking a historical-cultural look at methods for dealing with marital transgressions... tales of recent celebrity breakups, chapters devoted to payback songs and movies. Jilted women may find her barbed thesis on heartbreak—thinking about revenge can be as satisfying as exacting it—cathartic and a bit comforting...”     The Daily Beast    June 16, 2009    New & Newly Relevant Books    “It’s a how-to for anyone who’s ever been down in the jowls after a little heartbreak... And luckily, since the “Internet has put a new spin on vengeance,” there now are more creative ways of seeking revenge than ever before (nude pictures, anyone?). Nagorski... has even included a history of adultery and a wide array of expert opinion.”    Newsweek    June 15, 2009   Pages of Wrath: A New Book Looks At Why We Seek Revenge    “...Nagorski looks at the psychology of revenge, why it's important to talk about this very human reaction, and dishes up lots of juicy stories.”    The Today Show - MSNBC    August 24, 2009   Moving on is the best ‘Revenge’    Cosmopolitan    June 24, 2009   "The Most Heinous Revenge Stories Ever"     Superfastreader.com   June 12, 2009   “Breezy and snazzy, The Down and Dirty Dish on Revenge does a lot with what seems on the surface to be a thin premise. ...Nagorski looks at revenge in literature, through history, and across different cultures, with almost a sociologist’s eye. She peppers the book with real-life anecdotes of revenge both creative and mean-spirited. And she closes the book with a chapter on the virtues of forgiveness as the best revenge of all.”    The Boston Globe   January 2, 2010   The Self-Help Shelf: A quick guide to the 2009’s books that tell you how to fix - or find - a relationship    Maclean’s Magazine  July 6, 2009   How to get revenge on a cheater: Some creative ways for betrayed wives to hit an ex where it hurts    “The book... vacillates between outlandish stories to commentary by academics on the merits and dangers of getting revenge.  Imagine a melange of self-help (the “Revenger Quiz” gauges your level and style of vindictiveness), satire (a recipe for “the cold dish of revenge” includes “one hot thong he’ll never see you in”), history and psychology, written in the tone of a chick-lit novel.”    Divorced Women Online  January 26, 2010  Serving It Up Cold to that Lying, Cheating Bastard     BellaOnline: The Voice of Woman   September 2009   “...Using hilarious anecdotes...Nagorski’s book is filled with opportunities for readers to learn something new and laugh out loud in the process... [the book] serves as an uplifting, comical guide through what can often be a frustrating and confusing time. But you don’t need to be actively plotting revenge in order to appreciate this book. With such a wildly entertaining look at the many faces of revenge, just about anybody will get a kick out of these recipes for revenge... Nagorski did a great job of putting a humorous spin on the topic of revenge.”    Soyouvebeendumped.com    July 28, 2009   Recommended Summer Reads    “I’d definitely advise reading this book if you’re in that raw-angry phase – for you, I would guess it would be most cathartic.”    Exboyfriendjewelry.com    July 12, 2009   Revenge Book Give Away  Top three revenge stories win my book!  (Plus, read my guest blog and excerpts.)   Polish Daily News (Nowy Dziennik)  June 25, 2009  How to Make Guys Pay for Cheating   “The book reads superbly… this is a collection of stories that are tightly written, humorous and, as much as possible, with a lesson... The women in Nagorski’s book go through life lightly and freely…for them revenge is a cleansing shower.”
