The Mental floss history of the world: an irreverent romp through civilization's best bits

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
"An irreverent romp through history's best bits," The Mental Floss History of the World is an amazingly entertaining joyride through 60,000 years of human civilization. As audacious as it is edifying, here is a hilarious and irreverent--yet always historically accurate--overview of the ascent (or descent) of humankind, courtesy of the same rebel geniuses who brought you Mental Floss presents Condensed Knowledge and Mental Floss Presents Forbidden Knowledge. Updated with all the hot topics and events of the past few years, The Mental Floss History of the World is proof positive that just because something's true doesn't mean it's boring.
