Taking over the world is a lot of work. Any supervillain is bound to have questions. What's the perfect location for a floating secret base? What zany heist will fund my immoral plans? How do I control the weather, destroy the Internet, and never, ever die? Ryan North details a number of outlandish villainous schemes, drawing on known science and real-world technologies.
Highly detailed ... The results are archly funny and always thought-provoking ... Clever illustrations by Carly Monardo up the fun factor, and sidebars take deep dives into carbon-capture technology, airspace ownership laws and more. How to Take Over the World is a wild journey.
Humorous ... It’s an eclectic journey, full to the brim with North’s trademark sarcasm and humor. An excellent starting point for anyone interested in learning more about cutting edge science or becoming a supervillain.
Fun ... An entertaining manual illustrated with suitably farcical drawings ... The author’s spoof contains a serious subtext ... Knowledge, he proposes, is the greatest superpower of all. An exuberant handbook for making the world better.
