Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There's no such thing as too much information.

What if the most famous, brilliant, obsessive, strange, dumb and evil people throughout history had blogs? Wonder how Charles Lindbergh kept busy during his transatlantic flight? Wonder how Napoleon could possibly have reached the keyboard? In The Lost Blogs, you'll read the intimate weblogs of 175 iconic historical figures writing about their stupid pets, shaving rituals, primate romances, and plans for world domination — just like any other blogger...maybe even you! Here's your chance to discover:

  • Why Vlad the Impaler (and closet fashionista) insisted on symmetrical impalings
  • How a juicy hot dog nearly derailed Gandhi's hunger strike
  • Helen Keller's photoblog
  • Brigham Young wondering what to get his forty-three wives for Mother's Day
  • Frida Kahlo's lucrative endorsement deal with a tweezer manufacturer
  • Shakespeare selling out by bringing Romeo and Juliet back from the dead after the Queen calls the play "depressing"
  • Marilyn Monroe's frustration at her new beau "J," who blows her off because of an impromptu engagement in Cuba
So toss out your triple espresso and relieve your carpal tunnel syndrome. For the low, low price of $13.95, experience The Lost Blogs for half the cost of your monthly Internet fee, and read a digital version of history that was never meant to see the light of day.

Synopsis:

There are over 13 million people in the world currently blogging, but what about the blogs written by the iconic men and women who (unfortunately) died before the Internet was even invented? In this witty and original take on the most important technological development since spam, THE LOST BLOGS offers hundreds of blogs from the most famous minds in history, detailing their hysterically personal (and impersonal) revelations, such as: John Lennon's thoughts after meeting a young woman named Yoko Ono (and her strange interest in the Beatles' publishing rights). Tips of the trade from Jesus Christ's carpentry blog, including how to build a combination water and wine rack. Shakespeare's treatment for a new play about two princes who misplace their horse and carriage and spend the entire play trying to locate it. How a stray hot dog nearly derailed Ghandi's hunger strike. Jim Morrison's original lyrics to Light My Fire (what does smell like a burning tire?). And the missing two cents from everyone else who matters, proving there's no such thing as "too much information."
