9781847735041: History's Worst Decisions: And the People Who Made Them

Mankind's past is strewn with mistakes - colossal blunders driven by virtue as often as vice. The unlucky people in this book didn't always set out to cause the mayhem they did, but somehow things just went wrong. Really wrong. This new color edition of "History's Worst Decisions" is an entertaining look at some truly monumental mishaps, from Adam and Eve's decision to eat the apple and Nero's burning down of his own city, to the destruction of the Himalayan rain forest and the billions of dollars wasted on the Y2K scare. A compendium of cock-ups, "History's Worst Decisions" provides a clear warning - it's all too easy to go down in history as an idiot!
