An exhilarating journey through the most creative and catastrophic f*ck ups in human history, from our very first ancestor falling out of that tree, to the most spectacular fails of the present day.

This is HUMANS.

In the seventy thousand years that modern human beings have walked this earth, we've come a long way. Art, science, culture, trade - on the evolutionary food chain, we're real winners. But, frankly, it's not exactly been plain sailing, and sometimes - just occasionally - we've managed to really, truly, quite unbelievably f*ck things up.

From Chairman Mao's Four Pests Campaign, to the American Dustbowl; from the Austrian army attacking itself one drunken night, to the world's leading superpower electing a reality TV mogul as President... it's pretty safe to say that, as a species, we haven't exactly grown wiser with age.

So, next time you think you've really f*cked up, this book will remind you: it could be so much worse...

Without You: Living With Loss
The book is a compilation of letters from mothers, fathers, children, friends and partners who have lost someone, each letter written directly to the person they miss so dearly.

The purpose of ‘Without You – Living With Loss’ is to remind those who have suffered a bereavement, or who are facing a bereavement, that they can and will survive, and will go on to achieve things that the one who is gone could be hugely proud of.

The book, edited by Orlaith, features letters from members of the public, politicians, musicians, writers, broadcasters and journalists, with all proceeds from its sale donated to the Hospice.
