The Ultimate Book of Heroic Failures
There have been many great success stories in the world, but this book celebrates the complete and utter failures that have happened. The Ultimate Book of Heroic Failures is eclectic mix of facts and stories of people that have done stupid and down right silly things, whether it was their own fault or they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. As Stephen Pile says, author of The Ultimate Book of Heroic Failures, 'Anyone can be a success, but it takes real and original genius to foul up big time'.
Take this one titled 'The Most Failed Driving Tests'. Cha Sa-soon of South Korea, who came into the spotlight when she failed her driving test a world-beating 959 times. Or maybe the story of Matthieu Boya, he popped out for a game of golf during his lunch break and by the end of lunch, due to a horrible chain reaction of events, managed to knock a bird out of the sky with his golf ball, which smashed into a plane that was just about to take off, which made the plane swerve and skid into four military jets, wiping out African state of Benin's entire air force. It's amazing what can happen with a single golf swing.
All in all this amazing, laugh out loud book will keep you entertained and give you some great after dinner anecdotes.
