My mom bought this particular book from the series when I was 9 and being the knowledge-hungry person that I am, I devoured the book within a day. It' funny how stupidity sometimes can leave a great legacy.

I personally found this book different in a way that I really enjoyed. It sucked me in at the beginning with it's first story about how a forgotten stove fire burned down 13,000 houses and blackened 300 acres when it could've been stopped with just the turn of a knob. Most stories I had never heard before and had me giggling to myself the whole way through. One of the best plots was when the CBS radio station in 1938 was trying to get more viewers, so they hired a theatre group to do a play over [...]

A collection of short articles on notable failures - some quirky one-liners in boxes, some lasting for ten or twelve pages, most of a very easily readable length in between these. As a coffee-table or toilet book, it was OK - and since I only paid 25p for it, I can't complain. However, much of it wasn't new to me, the writing style was pretty plain, and I just felt it a little inconsistent - both with regards the length of the featured articles, and the awkward juxtaposition of (for example) new [...]

Did you know the French once suffered a casualty of 25% on friendly shots during wars just because of a major mistake in strategy?Or that the Titanic crew had been negligent in equipping itself with the right number of boats?So many facts about mistakes some of which will leave you laughing so hard.Great compilation!

This book was very interesting and a fun read. It is very funny to see how the greatest disasters started by mistake like the London fire.My favorite story was when the guy tried to jump off the top of the empire state building, he got blown back by the wind and landed on the 83 floor window sill. Great read fore anyone!!!!

A nice read from back then when we didn't have tv channels exclusively dedicated to this kind of stuff. Nigel goes a bit too far at times with his definition of mistake but overall it's a decent compilation of screw ups and a nicely done work

Couple of interesting stories and facts, but also makes you think "There but for the grace of God"

I love this series of books - great bathroom books. Divided in to short pieces, they are great trivial reads.

A light read about the mistakes of remarkable people in history. These people become remarkable because of their mistakes. Some are funny and amazing, but some are devastating.
