Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Salutations friends, fans, and groovy birds. I'm so pleased you decided to pick up my latest book, SHAGADELICALLY SPEAKING: THE WORDS AND WORLD OF AUSTIN POWERS. As many of you know, this is not the first time I've put pen to paper. My earlier tomes include Austin Powers' Kama Sutra, Austin Powers' Sexy Dictionary, Swedish-Made Penis Enlarger Pumps and Me (This Sort of Thing Is My Bag, Baby), and, of course, the white paper I composed on Caribbean macroeconomics in the NAFTA era, Bahamian Rhapsody.

And while I'm no Fyodor Dostoevsky or Jewel, I feel that I have written enough to earn a place at the table of important contemporary authors. Or at least enough to challenge Norman Mailer to a nude Jell-O-shot-drinking contest. Either way, there's no greater feeling than knowing you've reached someone with your manuscript. (My agen recently got word, in fact, that the Dewey Decimal System people were going to specifically reserve ".69" for my work.)

That's where SHAGADELICALLY SPEAKING comes in. If it's happened to me in my adventures, then it's in this book, luv. I've carefully categorized all my rites of passage and flights of fancy, in one comprehensive volume.

So fix yourself a martini, put Burt Bacharach album on the turntable - hey, make that CD player! - and give this book a look-see. It's all here, baby, and it's all about me, yeah!

Cinky,

Austin Powers
London, England
February 1999

This book lead me to believe that it would give some funny quotes and words from the austin powers movies. However, it had a lot of nonsense stuff in it. I love ustin Powers, but i did not love this book!--

Shagadelic Baby! A must have for Austin fans and anyone else who wants to be hip to the lingo. Its great to read before you see the movie so you don't miss some of the more esoteric bits! Also a super piece of literature to have to ensure that you are using all lingo and quotes appropriately at your next cocktail party! "Shagwell by name, Shag-Very-Well by reputation" ENJOY!

Loved this volume (and I'm totally not related to the author). The ultimate coffee table/conversation startin'/Mclaughlin Group watchin' person's kind of book.

I have read the content of "Shagadelically Speaking: the Words and World of Austin Powers." I read this extensive glossary in one evening, could not put it down. It is quite amusing. Need to be thrown a bone? Refer to this title. It can answer any questions about me or my archnemesis, Austin Powers. Gravitated too much toward "The Spy Who Shagged Me," though. There really is nothing quite like it, it's breathtaking, I suggest you read it. (bites pinky sadistically) Toodles.
