Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Mental Floss History of the World: An Irreverent Romp Through Civilization's Best Bits, Erik Sass, Steve Wiegand, Will Pearson, Mangesh Hattikudur, History is . . . (a) more or less bunk. (b) a nightmare from which I am trying to awaken. (c) as thoroughly infected with lies as a street whore with syphilis. Match your answers: (1) Stephen Daedalus of James Joyce's Ulysses (2) Henry Ford (3) Arthur Schopenhauer It turns out that answer need not be bunk, nightmarish, or diseased. In the hands of mental_floss, history's most interesting bits have been handpicked and roasted to perfection. Packed with little-known stories and outrageous--but accurate--facts, you'll laugh yourself smarter on this joyride through 60,000 years of human civilization. Remember: just because it's true, doesn't mean it's boring!. Bookseller Inventory # B9780060784775
