Duh! The Stupid History of the Human Race is a hilarious collection of the stupid things that people do-even the really smart people. Part 1: The Stupid Chronicles details the unbelievably idiotic things people have done, organized by such topics as politics, history, sports, arts, science, and dumb plays in the face of fate. Part 2: Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Stupidity but Were Too Smart to Ask looks at the track record of human stupidity in all its dumb glory. And Part 3: How to Destupify offers tongue-in-cheek advice on how to avoid ending up in a future edition of the book.
