Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sequel to the best-selling "Uncle John's Presents Book of the Dumb, author John Scalzi casts a wide net to bring readers more mind-boggling dumbosities perpetrated by dumb-doers. Dumb knows no bounds--it comes in all sizes, shapes, and colors from every outpost of the planet. And, to prove that dumb is not a current failing of humanity, the author digs into the past to bring fans some of history's blunders and bloopers to reveal how people have always had a knack for inane, inept, and ill-advised behavior.

Synopsis:

Uncle John Presents: Book of the Dumb 2 is the perfect remedy to a world gone stupid. John Scalzi has put together another collection devoted to the absurd antics of nincompoops, numbskulls, and nitwits. Nineteen chapters cover a broad range of utter stupidity—from political pinheads and famous fools to moronic movies and terrible television. Most important of all, the book continues to show that dumb doesn't discriminate—it comes in all sizes and sizes from every outpost of the planet.
