'Fcking brilliant' Sarah Knight 'Very funny' Mark Watson AN EXHILARATING JOURNEY THROUGH THE MOST CREATIVE AND CATASTROPHIC FCK-UPS OF HUMAN HISTORY, FROM OUR VERY FIRST ANCESTOR FALLING OUT OF THAT TREE, TO THE MOST SPECTACULAR FAILS OF THE PRESENT DAY 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 fck 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 fcked 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
