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
