The World's Worst: A Guide to the Most Disgusting, Hideous, Inept, and Dangerous People, Places, and Things on Earth Paperback – May 5, 2005
Top Customer Reviews
"The World's Worst" is light, fluffy, entertaining and a quick read. And it's very sequel-friendly--the next volume(s) will no doubt be just as amusing.
My only complaint was that the format was extremely limited. Perhaps in keeping with the jocular tone of the work the author didn't want to get into too much detail, but detail is precisely what makes many of these things fascinating.
If you have a friend or acquaintance who is discouraged, this would be an excellent gift. Perhaps we have an innate need to constantly reestablish that things can always be worse.
I bought it at a bargain price and still feel like I wasted my money.
My beef is that although the book is 176 pages long, it really has about half of that in content. Each "chapter/entry" starts off with a whole page dedicated to a sentance stating what the subject is, "Most Disgusting Drink", for example. Then the entry usually starts off in the middle of the next page. The lay out of this book makes it seem like it's a lot longer than it really is. Take a look at the example. I would have hoped for a longer tome.

This would make a great young adult nonfiction book so being in my 60's, I am probably the wrong age demographics for this book. Read morePublished on May 16, 2014 by Monte R. Peters
Handy to have on your phone, for the occasional waiting room sojourn, just short bits. A lot of facts you will rarely usePublished on November 10, 2013 by john j smestad
Great "bathroom"/sitting around waiting read. Digestible in small, enjoyable bits. I knew Frauenfelder's work from Boing Boing and the book did not disappoint.Published on September 1, 2013 by funky16corners
It was ok. I didn't pay a lot for it. Mildly amusing, but I won't read it twice, I think.Published on May 27, 2013 by H. Coffill
Some interesting stories, but much of the contents is things you'll have already read about if you're interested in this sort of thing, in no greater detail (and sometimes less).Published on April 28, 2013 by Amazon Customer
a fun read some are really ....really disgusting ... short but well worth the time. I read it in just a few hours over days but as it is just short chapters it worked well that way... Read morePublished on April 27, 2013 by Amazon Customer
It is fairly arbitrary to label something as the 'worst' (and one could probably say as much for any 'best" as well) -- Still, this was fun when I wanted to kill a few minutes... Read morePublished on April 21, 2013 by Michael Fleming
It was fun. It was entertaining. It was even educational. But these items are far from being the world's worst, just lousy.Published on April 4, 2013 by Irwin A. Weisberg
It has all kinds of weird strange things in it that I had never heard of. My only complaint is it was a little short, but for the price was well worth it.Published on April 2, 2013 by Michael Groat
