My Thoughts: Okay, this was just hilarious. A series of articles including advice on all aspects of being Super Evil, including the care and maintenance of minions, presentation, etc. If you've been wanting some advice on how to be truly Evil, whether it's big or small, you can find that here. Don't miss the biography

Recently it occurred to me that I'm not getting any younger and its time for me to start following my life's dream of becoming an evil mad scientist and take over the world. The problem was I didn't even know where to begin, I mean it's not like there are evil genius classes that you can take at your local community college. Then I was looking online and found A Method to the Madness A Guide to the Super Evil edited by Jeffery A Hite and Michell Plested.

This book will tell you everything you nee

I was given this book complimentary from in e-book form in return for my honest review. Everything stated in this review is of my own opinion and I was not compensated monetarily for providing this review.
I found this book to be a slow read, not due to it being badly written - it is not. I am one of a minority who did not like 'Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy', fans of this style of humor I suspect are the target audience for this book.
I read this one section at a time normall

A nifty range of essays. Great fun!

I was given this book to review as an ebook. That made it easy for me to read it while waiting for other things in my life to happen (a store to open, a doctor to see me, that sort of thing). That was, unfortunately, the only good thing about it. It was not badly written, it was just simply boring. I found my mind drifting from the words and taking flights of fancy that had little to do with the book I was supposed to be reading.
