50 People who stuffed up the world
About the Book
Who would top your list of the 50 people who have done the most to mess up the modern world?

From drug cheats, finance cheats and the morally corrupt to political despots and plain old crackpots, the world has certainly seen its fair share of villains in recent times. Be it through politics, war, sport, culture or just their general idiocy, these are men (and a handful of women) of infamy who have steered our good ship Humanity towards the World-War-fighting, smart-phone-tapping age we are mired in today.

50 People Who Messed Up the World unites the nastiest names from the last century and beyond in one highly unpleasant yet absolutely entertaining package.

(Published in South Africa as 50 People Who Stuffed Up The World.)
