The World's Worst: A Guide to the Most Disgusting Hideous Inept, and Dangerous People, Places, and Things on Earth Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bookstore shelves are lined with tomes dedicated to the finest things that life has to offer. This is all well and good, but the real entertainment is to be found not in the cream of the crop, but at the bottom of the barrel. The World's Worst is a celebration/indictment of nearly 50 infamous and little-known exemplars of the awful. In thoroughly researched, scathingly funny essays, author Mark Frauenfelder avoids the obvious and digs deep to tell the fascinating tales of the worst people, places, and things on Earth for the reader's amusement and edification. Half of the entries are also mischieviously illustrated by the author. Addictively readable, and sure to appeal to fans of the popular Worst-Case Scenario and Darwin Awards series, The World's Worst is hilariously unafraid to wallow in the mire.

Selected Horrible Highlights:

Most Unappealing Fetish

Most Disgusting Coffee Drink

Most Horrific Self-Help Technique

Least Adorable Pet

Saddest Fate for an Island Nation

Worst Molasses Related Disaster
