Overview

Leave it to the experts of the best-selling Worst-Case Scenario series to ferret out the most scandalous, dangerous, incompetent, and downright awful people to ever seek power. The most lavish palaces, the bloodiest coups, the stupidest declarations. . . . Plus all the lists, charts, maps, and profiles that have made the Worst-Case Scenario Almanacs such a success. Which country had more governments in the past 175 years—Italy or Bolivia? What ever happened to all those people who ran for vice president of the United States of America—and lost? Illustrated, step-by-step scenarios describe how to respond when confronted with misfortune or challenge, including how to give a concession speech, kiss a drooling baby, escape a sex scandal, and evade the truth.

I have had fun reading this book. Especially during this pre election time I would recommend this read. Not only is it fun advice, some of it is good advice. Also I was surprised to see that the book contained real life people who have been a part of political scandals from BC to present day. A must read!!

Information presented in most of the dialog boxes are printed too small to read without a microscope. In most of these boxes there is information that is very interesting. I'm not running for office, so the ''tips'' for running for office are not pertinent to me, however it does give insight as to how politicians ''spin'' the facts. Some are interesting. Like how they are prompted to 'hold' a baby when they take it from the Mom. Or what to do about the 'black sheep' of the family so bad news doesn't get out.

Fun reading and made me laugh out loud. Actually contained a lot of historical information. Only complaint is that some of the charts were unredable as printed.
