I thought this book was hilarious. I read it in a day or two. If you want a book that makes you laugh you should try this one out.

Crude, sophomoric humor, ridiculous captions. Put them together under the Cracked writing team and you get a frequently laugh out loud guide to the world. Covering history, anatomy ( you should expect adult themed topics there, after all the writers say it has "more sexy facts than the Encyclopedia Pornographica"), the animal kingdom, science and so on. It busts myths, even the USA comes in for a heavy duty beat-down. It also explains how badly we look at ourselves. And surprisingly it (literally) ends on a positive life affirming note.
