A Short History of Stupid, Helen Razer and Bernard Keane

29.99 AUD
How did everything get so dumb?

How did we become hostages to idiocy?

What must we do to be freed from a captor whose ransom note simply reads, 'D'oh'?

The deteriorating quality of our public debate and the dwindling of common sense in media, politics and culture can drive you to despair and rage. It certainly drove writers Helen Razer and Bernard Keane to a desperate act: befriending each other for long enough to write a book.

Join forces with these uneasy allies to fight against a world that has lost its reason. Explore what's behind the remorseless spread of idiocy, and why there's just so much damn Stupid around you.
