Very smart and funny. It's also ... a timely reminder not to get too down ... Would definitely recommend. -- Matt Coyne, author of Man vs. Toddler Humans is Tom Phillips' timely, irreverent gallop through thousands of years of human stupidity. Every time you begin to find our foolishness bizarrely comforting, Phillips adds another kick in the ribs. Beneath all this book's laughter is a serious question: where does so much serial stupidity take us? -- Nicholas Griffin * Ping-Pong Diplomacy: The Secret History Behind the Game That Changed the World * Chronicles humanity's myriad follies down the ages with malicious glee and much wit . . . a rib-tickling page-turner * Business Standard * Tom Phillips is a very clever, very funny man, and it shows. If Sapiens was a testament to human sophistication, this history of failure cheerfully reminds us that humans are mostly idiots -- Greg Jenner * A Million Years and a Day * Tom Phillips has proven beyond a doubt that humans are goddamn lucky to be here and are doing nearly nothing to remain relevant and viable as a species - except, that is, for writing witty, entertaining, and slightly distressing-but-ultimately-endearing books about same. And if you care to avoid orbiting the earth in a space-garbage prison of your fellow humans' design, you should probably read it -- Sarah Knight * The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck * A light-touch history of moments when humans have got it spectacularly wrong... Both readable and entertaining * Telegraph * If you find yourself looking at the news and wondering how humanity has got so many things wrong, over and over again, this book is a very funny answer to just that question' -- Mark Watson, comedian In dark times, it's reassuring to learn that we've always been a bunch of clueless f*cking nitwits -- Stuart Heritage * Don't Be a Dick, Pete *
