5.0 out of 5 stars Evil People February 9, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was a good book and it does well at describing the atrocities that these people committed, but it missing a few people like Khomeini, Francisco Solano Lopez, King John, Cromwell, Pizzaro, and Nero. Other than that it has the most evil people in history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative December 16, 2011
By Jamie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book definitely worth the purchase price. It covers quite a bit. My only complaint is that it drags on in parts and starts to read like a history text book in others. There are quite a few typos as well, which can be distracting, but otherwise, it's a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars The World's Most Evil People July 12, 2012
By TheKat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title of the book is somewhat of a misnomer. Whereas, any such list of the most (fill in blank)is always going to be very subjective, this book includes people who are not actually considered to be evil, even by the author.
Persons who are not actually evil include those who were intensely disliked by a population for a time, or people who simply engaged in bad behaviour. While I think is the book's major flaw, the author does make a succinctly compelling case for why each of these particular people were on his list, making for a quite an interesting read.

The book was interesting at most. Some of the people included should not be in the list. Can you really categorize Lenin as an evil man?

While some of the stories capture interest, most seem just a mish mash of facts assembled in no particular order.

You're better off spending a few hours in a library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read March 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think the title is misleading, however very good historical context in it. I really enjoyed learning about some of the people I heard of but never knew for sure who they were. It was brought together nicely.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting February 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While the stories are interesting and chock full of facts, it is poorly written. There's tons of people who are mentioned, and if you don't already know the story, you'd be lost because he doesn't explain who the people are.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bloated but interesting
This book was bloated but interesting.

There were times when I was hooked and page turning like mad and other times when I felt bogged down in too many useless words.
