Overview

For the first time ever a cancelled show has been resurrected on the basis of its cult following in syndication, on the internet and on DVD (Over 2.2 million DVDs sold to date!) and we've got the tie–in book authored by one of the show's hilarious lead writers and animators!

At first sight, the Griffens may seem like a normal blue collar family from Quonochontaug Rhode Island, but Peter (the family's loutish dad), Brian (the erudite, martini–swilling pet dog) and Stewie (the evil toddler son) set them apart from all others.

Now Stewie––a true baby genius and the most popular of the Griffen clan––speaks out. Having been hell bent on achieving world domination ever since he escaped the cursed ovarian Bastille he was incarcerated in for nine grueling months, he has finally decided that in order to rule the world we live in one must first understand it. Herewith are his musings on family, love, parenting, preschool, work, pop culture, politics and more. If only we knew then what Stewie knows now, adults everywhere could have defeated their mother's matriarchal tyranny and toppled the "gynocracy" she ruled over . . .and god knows what else!

This book is for the insufferable child in us all, eager to buck the ways of the old guard or just eager for a laugh.

From Barnes & Noble
Forget Bush, Blair, Chirac, and Putin. Stewie Griffin is the one world leader with a workable plan. Unfortunately, this obstreperous toddler can't yet implement his ambitious plans because of teething problems and inadequate potty training. In Family Guy: Stewie's Guide to World Domination, America's favorite would-be tyrant shares his views on work, politics, religion, family, childhood, and education.

    Great Stuff!

    I didn't know what to expect when I bought this book either but I'm so glad I did! It's really funny and some of his views are pretty interesting. I loved his view on the 'Three R's'. That was so true!

    Stewie Griffin

    Stewie Griffin is a maniacal one-year-old baby genius who sees clearly what's wrong with the world and is hell-bent on staging a coup d'état that would turn absolute power over to him! The first tyrannical leader on his hit list is his mother, Lois -- the leader of the 'gynocracy' making his young life totally insufferable. There are others, too. Hell, if it weren't for his lack of muscle tone, toilet training, and his need for parentally provided sustenance, Stewie would have already gained control over most of the third world. But even as a toddler Stewie knows that in order to rule the world you must first understand it. So he has compiled a book of his own musings on a wide variety of subjects: work, politics, religion, family, love, childhood, parenting, education, and more. What results is an anarchist's delight.

    We all knew Stewie wanted world domination, but here are his thoughts on it

    Honestly, I had no idea what to expect when I purchased this book. All I knew was: 1) It was about Stewie's views on everything relevant today; 2)It would be funny being from Family Guy. Stewie's Guide To World Dominatin is well worth the money. It's extremely funny, and even includes pictures from the show, as well as some of the gags (such as a certain Monkey that lives in Chris's closet). Don't forget to tune in THIS Sunday for the 4th season premiere of FG on FOX.

    Stewie Rocks

    This book is for everyone who like family and loves Stewie! It's oppionated and a little risque at parts but remember this comes from an animated one year old and is not meant to be taken seriously. Over all its just a hysterically funny book that all Family Guy Fans will like.
