Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The original "irreverent jaunt through the catastrophes, cataclysms and outrages that shaped our world" has sold more than 73,000 copies. This updated edition takes us from the Big Bang (it was an explosion, after all) to the turn of the millennium, with more than 10,000 new words and 100 new entries that chronicle the disasters, bad decisions, and downright evil events that have taken place since September 1991 (the last entry, in the first book). With a light but informative tone and a handy timeline of events, this is addictively friendly fare for those who want a different — and, some might argue, more intriguing — view of history.
