"Mental Floss" Presents Forbidden Knowledge PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

From the same evil geniuses that brought you "Condensed Knowledge" comes an adorably naughty and delightfully mischievous romp through the dark side of human nature. The brainiest team at mental floss have scoured the darkest, dirtiest corners of history and the globe to gather this ultimate collection of the bad stuff you're not supposed to know and you certainly never learned in school. Organized by theme, with chapters for each of the seven deadly sins, the book includes feuds, hoaxes, scandals, mob bosses, acts of revenge, cannibals and much more, all organized into bite-sized - albeit foul-tasting - lists such as: The Fascist Style Guide: Five Dictator Grooming Tips, Four Biblical Girls Gone Wild, Three Delicious Animals We Charbroiled Into Extinction, and so much more!
