Rating this as a stand-in for the Big Books in general, because I really don't want my bookshelf clogged up with 10 different pointless Big Book entries. But yeah, they are pretty much all funny and great to read if the "random factoid" type book holds interest to you. Great bathroom type books.
Sometimes, reading about other people's failures cheers me up. Is that twisted?

These loser stories are told in a page or two, in comic book form, with art by different artists, which keeps things from getting boring.

I enjoyed this book a lot.
It will come as no surprise probably that my favorite kinds of books as a kid are crazy fact books. And, still true as an adult. Love this series of books so much! Now, whenever I use a paperclip I'll reflect on its poor inventor.
I skimmed this comic book. What it talks about is things and people of history that failed and it's in comic form. Great book for people who like comics and want to read about history.
Funny book. Kind of makes you feel good if you are like me and make mistakes and do dumb things. lol Makes you glad your not in the book.
After seeing this book at some friends’ cabin, I was delighted to find a copy at Powell’s Book. Strange tales told in graphic novel format.
