Sullivan This new slant on history is up to date than Herodotus digestible than Gibbon fun than a barrel of Toynbees It is stranger than fiction but definitely not fiction No one could make up this stuffThink you know history Who were the good guys. PJ Sullivan s Mostly Rapscallions is the best humor book to come along in years The comedy text s subtitle provides a capsule view of its contents Salient Sillies About the Rich and the Infamous in History Sullivan s inspires heckling of history is reminiscent of the work of Will Cuppy s The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody and Richard Armour s The Classics Reclassified Sullivan s text is also a fun shish kabobbing of academia including laugh out loud footnotes such as Bismarck slept with his hounds I don t know where his wife slept It s really none of my business or Ivan The Terrible must have lots of descendants alive today but they don t seem to want to talk about him History wrapped in humor is the only way to go since you re laughing your way to intelligence well maybe not you over in the corner Regardless Sullivan s satire is 5 STARS all the way Wes Gehring

Sullivan During the Petticoat War What did Marie Antoinette see in Louie XVI Did Casanova ever find true love Why did Benito Mussolini stop wearing bowler hats Why did Joan of Arc hang out with the world’s wickedest man Who was Cupid Dewey and why. This book is well researched and will be enjoyed by both seasoned students of history as well as novices The illustrations are outstanding and there are many Humor in the style of Jonathan Swift You think times are bad now and politicians are thieves and rapscallions or worse They were in the good old days the golden age and every other time No doubt Sullivan would like to go after today s politicos too I think he does not want to be sued or worse
