Recensie

"Tom Phillips has proven beyond a doubt that humans are goddamn lucky to be here and are doing nearly nothing to remain relevant and viable as a species--except, that is, for writing witty, entertaining, and slightly distressing-but-ultimately-endearing books about same. And if you care to avoid orbiting the earth in a space-garbage prison of your fellow humans' design, you should probably read it."--Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of Get Your Sh*t Together


"Humans is Tom Phillips' timely, irreverent gallop through thousands of years of human stupidity. Every time you begin to find our foolishness bizarrely comforting, Phillips adds another kick in the ribs. Beneath all this book's laughter is a serious question: where does so much serial stupidity take us?"--Nicholas Griffin, author of Ping-Pong Diplomacy: The Secret History Behind the Game That Changed the World


"Tom Phillips is a very clever, very funny man, and it shows. If Sapiens was a testament to human sophistication, this history of failure cheerfully reminds us that humans are mostly idiots."-Greg Jenner, author of A Million Years in a Day


"Chronicles humanity's myriad follies down the ages with malicious glee and much wit... a rib-tickling page-turner,"--Business Standard


"A laugh-along, worst-hits album for humanity. With the delicate touch of a scholar and the laugh-out-loud chops of a comedian, Tom Phillips shows how our species has been messing things up ever since we evolved from apes and came down from the trees some 4 million years ago."--Steve Brusatte, University of Edinburgh palaeontologist and New York Times bestselling author of The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs


"Humans is a thoroughly entertaining account of unintended consequences, of arrogance and ignorance, of human follies and foibles from ancient times to the present. It seems history has taught us nothing--we are doomed to keep suffering the antics of both well-intended and ill-intended fools. As I was reading I wondered how I could be so disheartened and yet at the same time be laughing out loud."--Penny Le Couteur, author of Napoleon's Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History


"Thoroughly informative. Thoroughly entertaining. Thoroughly demoralizing. In a fun kind of way."--Robert Sapolsky New York Times bestselling author of Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst


"It's hard to imagine someone other than Phillips pulling off a 250+ page roast of mankind, but his perfect blend of brilliance and goofiness makes it a joy to read."--Buzzfeed


"Cheeky and vulgar yet surprisingly erudite, the book is like Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens (2015) retold by a standup comedian a few drinks in."--Booklist


"Lively, informative and superbly entertaining....Tom Phillips's history class is in session, so be sure to get a front-row seat."--Shelf Awareness

Productbeschrijving

'This book is brilliant. Utterly, utterly brilliant' Jeremy Clarkson

'F*cking brilliant' Sarah Knight

AN EXHILARATING JOURNEY THROUGH THE MOST CREATIVE AND CATASTROPHIC F*CK-UPS OF HUMAN HISTORY

In the seventy thousand years that modern human beings have walked this earth, we've come a long way. Art, science, culture, trade - on the evolutionary food chain, we're real winners. But, frankly, it's not exactly been plain sailing, and sometimes - just occasionally - we've managed to really, truly, quite unbelievably f*ck things up.

From Chairman Mao's Four Pests Campaign, to the American Dustbowl; from the Austrian army attacking itself one drunken night, to the world's leading superpower electing a reality TV mogul as President... it's pretty safe to say that, as a species, we haven't exactly grown wiser with age.

So, next time you think you've really f*cked up, this book will remind you: it could be so much worse...


FURTHER PRAISE FOR HUMANS:

'A timely, irreverent gallop through thousands of years of human stupidity' Nicholas Griffin, Ping-Pong Diplomacy: The Secret History Behind the Game That Changed the World
