Format: Paperback
Now you might be laughing hysterically, as the topics covered are scary. The author is quite colourful and turns what would otherwise be a frightening read into something that can give you a laugh after a bad day in the office or an afternoon stuck in traffic.

Format: Paperback
Are you tired of the media's ill-educated hysterical fear-mongering? Would you prefer accurately researched terrifyingly funny fear-mongering? This book is a must-have for anyone who even pretends to like laughing or "staying alive." It'll also make make you look incredibly smart and witty when these subjects come up in conversation, which they will, and people will welcome the moment of humor while running from the unkillable plant monsters.

It combines real research with humor, telling stories of the Russian who single-handedly saved the world, the real revenge of the robots, the immortal Highlander of infectious bacteria, and all manner of other incredible things in fast, funny, bathroom-break-sized chunks. A perfect gift for anyone who likes to sound smart, cares about the environment, or cheers while watching Armageddon - basically the entire intellectual spectrum. Of course, you'll have to "test" it by reading it yourself first.

Start building a bunker. Right now!! April 14 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Name 5 ways we're all going to die. Do it! Right now! Before reading this book I knew of maybe three ways: asteroid, war, or plague. Wait, four--global warming. Robert Brockway details, like, 20, and each one scares you more than the last. I've learned way more about killer volcanos, super hurricanes, and killer robots than I ever actually wanted to know, but at least all this fear-mongering put a smile on my face. So buy the book, get informed of all ways everything and everybody wants you dead, and come join me in my bunker. I have nachos!

Some say the end is near. April 16 2010
By S. L. Starr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is amazingly crammed full of information. My favorite part is the Verneshot. Read this, and you will learn a lot more about the world than by reading the newspaper or watching tv. Some parts are genuinely scary. I feel like there's a 50% chance we will unleash a terrifying virus or disease on mankind based on the ridiculous science experiments Brockway describes. It's fine abstractly, but think about what that will actually be like. How do you cope when you're reading this before sleeping? Luckily, you laugh. Buy this book!

Will reading Brockway make you more attractive to the opposite sex? Maybe. Jan. 13 2011
By Basic Chemistry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fans of Cracked.com (undoubtedly, a large percentage of you) will enjoy this book. The format is similar to many of the articles on the site, but more in-depth. It doesn't come off as expanded just to fill pages, however. The information is presented as concisely as possible, while still retaining all of its humor and sarcasm. The selected bibliography provides a starting point for further research into any of the topics that catch your interest, instead of just typing "robots are going to kill me" into Google.

I'm building a bunker, not that it will help... Dec 30 2010
By ShoeAddict - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
What an utterly entertaining book! Now, it does have a lot of curse words in it, so if you don't enjoy sarcasm and a generous sprinkling of swearing, you might want to pass on this book. However, if you're like me and sarcasm is your first language, followed by cursing, followed by English, it's a wholly entertaining look at the worst case possible scenarios of how space, people, robots and chicken potatoes are out to kill you.

Funniest Book in a Long Time... May 28 2010
By John F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is hands down the funniest book I've read in a long time. The only things that kept me from running out and buying a tin foil helmet were the well timed swear words and humorous anecdotes that made the end of the world seem awesome.
