History's Worst Decisions: An Encyclopedia Idiotica by Stephen Weir
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Mankind's past is strewn with mistakes, colossal blunders driven by virtue as often as vice. The unlucky people in this book didn't always set out to cause the mayhem they did, but somehow things just went wrong. Really wrong. "History's Worst Decisions" is an entertaining look at some truly monumental mishaps, from Adam and Eve's decision to eat the apple and Nero's burning down of his own city, to the destruction of the Himalayan rain forest and the billions of dollars wasted on the Y2K scare. This compendium of cock-ups provides a clear warning - it's all too easy to go down in history as an idiot!
