A scarily funny compendium of the modern world's most despicable villains, packed with hilarious illustrations from award-winning cartoonist Zapiro.
From drug lords, drug cheats and the morally corrupt to political despots and plain, old crackpots - the twentieth century certainly saw its fair share of villains. Be it through politics, war, sport, culture or just their general idiocy, these are men and women of infamy who have steered our good ship Humanity towards the World-War-fighting, smart-phone-tapping age we are mired in today.
Interesting stuff - go read it! -- Nigel Pierce * Good Hope FM * A book which is likely to launch a few thousand arguments about who else ought to have been included . . . with superb cartoons from Zapiro . . . And I applaud the inclusion of the nameless lady who assures us, 'Your call is so important to us that we've been ignoring you for seventeen minutes at your expense.' -- Jay Heale * Fine Music Radio Christmas 2017 recommendation * Brilliant. D'you remember Meg Ryan's orgasm in When Harry Met Sally? No, I didn't have an orgasm (sadly) reading the book, but I did yell Yes Yes Yes! -- Gorry Bowes Taylor A fascinating, terrific read. -- Gareth Cliff * CliffCentral * A fantastic thought-provoking book that renews my appreciation for history. It reminds us how we got here and how we can avoid things getting worse. -- Mandla Shongwe * SAFM Lifestyle * I can't imagine how they whittled it down to just 50 people'. -- Comedian Nik Rabinowitz
