    Book details


Compiled by Professor Anders Henriksson from the term papers and blue book exams of students who clearly made it to college before the advent of "No Child Left Behind", "Ignorance Is Blitz" is unput-downable. You won't believe what you just read, and won't want to wait to see what's coming next, from the Virgin Mary's Immaculate Contraption to Pericles' greatest erection, the Parthenonon to Custard's Last Stand to Hitler shooting himself in the Bonker and Martin Luther King's ground-breaking speech, "If I Had a Hammer." And who knew: Caesar was assassinated on the Yikes of March, when he is reported to have said, "Me too, Brutus." Rasputin was a pheasant by birth. Victims of the black plague grew boobs on their neck. Judyism had one big God named Yahoo. Marie Curie won the Nobel Prize for inventing the radiator. And "During the Dark Ages, it was mostly dark."

"Glorious... equal-opportunity idiocy for every era." - Philadelphia Enquirer. "A horrifically hilarious compendium... knitting together errors, assumptions, and creative fact-making that are shocking and hysterical." - Associated Press."

  • By Azathoth on 28 November 2016

    Not the greatest of editions I have seen. Whereas it is a hardback, both the printing and the binding feels cheap. For the price, I am not complaining, but this is not the greatest of books.When it comes to its contents, it's a fun read, but will mostly be appreciated by university professors more than anyone else, especially ones related to North American institutions.

    Student howlers from the USA. Some made me smile and a few made me laugh, but it is not a patch on '1066 and All That' which is the real classic.
