    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.

    Any additional comments?

    This book has NO insights, just anecdotal stories. It’s easy in hindsight to point out some unsuccessful events but little sight as to why – what should they have done differently, what was the flaw in their thinking. Jimi Heselden was kill driving his Segway off a cliff so it’s a bad idea – but Thomas Selfridge, one of the first passengers was kill in a flight, was the airplane a bad idea? New Coke was a classic stinker, but Pepsi did the same thing with Crystal Pepsi – what were they thinking, I don’t know, the book doesn’t go there. The humor wears thin quickly, assertions are made without foundations. I didn’t enjoy at all.
