Product Description

From the Author

Ordinary People Confess Their Worst Deeds - in Comic Form
For this book I collected more than 600 answers to the question: "What's the worst thing you've ever done?" I talked to veterans, inmates, stockbrokers, homeless people, students, politicians, bankers--you name it. Then I chose the 23 best stories, the ones that were interesting and said something about the human condition, and drew them out in a graphic-novel format. It was a lot of fun to do, and apparently other people found it fun as well, since the book has been favorably reviewed by dozens of newspapers.

Format: Paperback
This was an extremely disturbing "cartoon" book, full of horrifying stories of literally the worst things people have ever done. Although the author claims in his Introduction that he did not include animal-abuse stories, the second one is about someone who admits to having lit turtles on fire. And it gets worse in other stories--much worse. In his promotional copy in Amazon.com, the author claims that this book was favorable reviewed by dozens of publications. I can't imagine it would have been--without a serious caveat about how disturbing it is. The cartoon format makes it even more sickening. I'm sorry I bought it--it sounded interesting.

I first saw Ted Rall's work in "Might" magazine. I thought it was great social commentary with an edge. If your tired of being spoon fed your daily dose of reality by Dan Rather, check him out. He exposes the absurdities of everyday life and the ugliness of human behavior. Its black humor with a liberal bent. Not everyone's cup of tea but wickedly funny!

I love Rall's biting humor and he helped me out of a hard time, by e-mailing me the text to "My War with Brian" when I was having trouble with people at school. I love his monthly MRR Column and his cartoons show us what is really going on without watering it down so its "nice". Keep up the good work!

This is one of the funniest comics I've read in a long time, and anyone with a truly dark sense of humor will enjoy it. The best story deals with some teenagers locking a kid in a maulseum--over night! I am eagerly awaiting the sequel.

The worst thing that people have done, turns out to be animal abuse and treating people badly. I don't think that all of the stories were that funny. It's an easy read and you realise what people are capable of doing!
