9780316018432: Our Dumb World

OUR DUMB WORLD is the world's most comprehensive fake atlas: a repository of all known information about the planet Earth (except where covered by clouds).

In late 2007 the hardcover edition became one of the hottest books of the holiday season, entertaining and offending hundreds of thousands of readers around the globe. This new, easy-to-carry paperback edition is perfect for the intrepid traveler to any of the world's exotic locales--from Afghanistan, "Allah's Cat Box," to Ukraine, "the Bridebasket of Europe," to the USA's own Nevada, "Where Everyone's a Loser."

Packed with beautiful full-color maps and framed with inaccurate essays about all the world's peoples and places, OUR DUMB WORLD is a gut-busting send-up in which no nation escapes unscathed.
"Bottom line: laughed my head off." --Deirdre Donahue, USA Today

About the Author:

Every week, three million readers turn to the world's most popular news organization for a much-needed dose of Onion news and entertainment coverage. In a history spanning 15 years, six popular books, and 10 Webby Awards, The Onion has attracted legions of loyal fans drawn to its fearless reporting and scathing commentary on world events, human behavior, and journalistic convention.

From AudioFile:

If you chortle and guffaw at the arch and snarky offerings of America's funniest publication, THE ONION, then OUR DUMB WORLD is a compendium of international satire you will cherish. Presented with pompous flourishes and big-voiced aplomb, OUR DUMB WORLD cheekily deflates the egos and efforts of every land on earth in a mock-educational melee of geopolitical and cultural hatchet-jobbery that only the most uptight listener will reject as sophomoric and over the top, which this audio candy certainly can be. OUR DUMB WORLD falters occasionally where many sound adaptations tend to--when very funny text just doesn't translate to narration. And the elaborate coffee-table-book illustrations are hard to emulate in audio. Nonetheless, THE ONION will be bring tears to most listeners' eyes with this offering.
