    From memorable disasters such as New Coke, the XFL, and Tiger Woods’ marriage to less-remembered failures such as Yugo, Cop Rock, and Microsoft’s BOB, Worst Ideas Ever revisits history’s biggest blunders. Whether it’s a pop culture failure or a political one, Worst Ideas Ever uncovers the ridiculous stories behind mistakes so huge, you’ll have to constantly remind yourself that they actually happened.

    What would have made Worst Ideas Ever better?

    Engaging/entertaining stories. There must be some bad worst ideas ever.


    What could Daniel Kline and Jason Tomaszewski have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Perhaps more research than quoting a Wikipedia article. I swear the Taco Bell dog was lifted word-for-word.


    What three words best describe Patrick Lawlor’s voice?

    Snarky, uninspiring, uninflected

    Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human. But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.

    Story

    This story really moves. The characters are easy to like or hate, as the authors intended, and the mystery is interesting enough that you want to keep listening to it. At the same time it's not so intellectually demanding that it will disturb your driving. Excellent for what it intends to be.
