Publisher's Synopsis

Did you know…?

  • Russia sold Alaska to the US for just $7.2 million in 1867
  • Alexander the Great failed to name an heir to his vast empire before he died, which subsequently led to its fall
  • J. K. Rowling received several rejections from publishers before her first Harry Potter book hit the shelves

We all do stupid things in our lives, but the events in this book are next-level ridiculous! Packed with trivia and information on the world's biggest fails in history, this book will leave you shocked and a little smug as you discover the true meaning of the word 'cock-up'.
