Editorial Reviews:

Everyone wants to rule the world, but only a precious few have the skills to create an ironclad plan of attack. Simple, direct, and delightfully unprincipled, this guide contains tales of global power mongering from every age and endeavors to show dilettante dictators and tyrants-to-be just how it's done. Tips are provided on creating a personal flag, what type of puppet government to establish, how to squelch free speech, and, most important, how to handle enemies. Also included are humorous full-color illustrations, sidebars on admirable despots, and self-quizzes that allow readers to see if they have what it takes to conquer the world.

Summary: Funny but...
Comment: "How to rule the World" is a very funny book with excelent quotations and historic references that contributes to deliver an enviroment of "seriousness". The only problem with the book is its male orientation. It's not written for women in spite of their possibilities to become an excellent dictator.

Summary: More informational than one would think
Comment: Although the book is very silly and even facetious at times, it's based on a lot of really interesting historical figures. The illustrations make the book.

Summary: funny!
Comment: This book is historically informative and hillarious! If you've got any secret plans to rule, how to avoid conpirators or how to acquire power and keep it... this is your new bible.

Summary: To dictate or not to dictate
Comment: How to Rule the World... sounds simple enough, and with this guide, it makes it all the easier. You'll learn the tell tale signs of whether you should rule the world, set yourself in position so as to takeover and what to do once you are there. You'll learn how to dress extravagantly, where to hide your money, what earthly objects you will need to show off your wealth, and even what to do when you are ready to retire and put the next person of your choosing into power.

All this and snappy little history lessons based on past world rulers and their mistakes and proper procedures. While most book along this line tend to throw in alot of humor, this one cuts back on it, providing just enough tongue-in-cheek to make it a light-hearted affair while getting a history lesson on world rulers. It's not Machiavelli but if you wanted that then you should read that.

Overall, it's imaginative, light hearted, and informative. Well worth buying, Only down part is the artwork really put me off to begin with as it is seemingly done by a child, however, it grows on you and then I think it becomes more appropriate with these caricatures rather than more realistic portraits.

Summary: How To Rule The World
Comment: How to rule the world is about well how to rule the world and different people who have tryed to rule the world. They talk about people who tryed to rule the world so that you can see where they went wrong and what you can do to improve it.

My favorite part of the book was the chapter that told you how to run a country. I like this chapter because it tell you how to make a flag, how to change a countries name,and how to dress like a ruler. I thought that these were very important concepts to ruling the world because I want to run a country some day and I need to know how to name it.

I would recomened this book to anyone who wants to rule the world, to someone who wants a quick read, and to anyone who can under stand big words like qualification. I would recemened this book to anyoneone who wants to rule the world because this book has some pretty good ideas to do this. it is not a long book so if anyone wants to read something raelly fast this is the book for you. they use alot of really big words in the book that half the time you can't even understand what they mean. But the big words don't really matter that much if you really want to rule the world.
