This book is written by a regular guy. In many other books on this subject, you will find a whole range of words - most of which are no longer in use. It is the equivalent of saying groovy. The author concentrates on a small group of words that never go out of style and explains how to use them and what they mean. An ability to read the Cyrillic alphabet will greatly help the reader. As long as you don't expect a comprehensive list of every Russian cuss word, you won't be disappointed.

There are several books available, if you want to learn Russian swear words.
This one really doesn't impart a huge amount in the way of actual swear words, but what is does well is give good cultural background and the "thinking" behind the relatively few words it provides.
A little repetitious in some ways.....
If you're going to buy only one book on swearing in Russian, my recommendation would be
"Dermo!: The Real Russian Tolstoy Never Used".....
I found it a lot more useful, a lot more complete, and and lot more well-rounded than this book.
