F*cking brilliant` Sarah Knight `Very funny` Mark Watson AN EXHILARATING JOURNEY THROUGH THE MOST CREATIVE AND CATASTROPHIC F*CK-UPS OF HUMAN HISTORY In the seventy thousand years that modern human beings have walked this earth, we`ve come a long way. Art, science, culture, trade - on the evolutionary food chain, we`re real winners. But, frankly, it`s not exactly been plain sailing, and sometimes - just occasionally - we`ve managed to really, truly, quite unbelievably f*ck things up. From Chairman Mao`s Four Pests Campaign, to the American Dustbowl; from the Austrian army attacking itself one drunken night, to the world`s leading superpower electing a reality TV mogul as President... it`s pretty safe to say that, as a species, we haven`t exactly grown wiser with age. So, next time you think you`ve really f*cked up, this book will remind you: it could be so much worse... FURTHER PRAISE FOR HUMANS: `A light-touch history of moments when humans have got it spectacularly wrong... Both readable and entertaining` The Telegraph `Chronicles humanity`s myriad follies down the ages with malicious glee and much wit ... a rib-tickling page-turner` Business Standard `A timely, irreverent gallop through thousands of years of human stupidity` Nicholas Griffin, Ping-Pong Diplomacy: The Secret History Behind the Game That Changed the World
