The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody: Great Figures of History Hilariously Humbled - Will Cuppy - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody:

The whys behind the nosedives of history's biggest whos.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Maybe the cavemen knew best."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What would you make with an old statue?

Who was the first Euro child born in North America?

My review of the book:

The funnest history book EVER.

It should be used in schools.

Well-researched, easy to read, and completely enlightening.
