Atlas, Schmatlasis an absolutely silly, yet decidedly informative and comprehensive atlas of the world. Written and illustrated by Craig Robinson—who got a “D” on his “O” level geography exams—Schmatlashas over 250 entries covering the globe, and is filled with colorful maps, graphs, illustrations of notable figures and famous residents, and even a quiz to test your knowledge of the nations of West Africa. Chock full of questionable historical and geographical information,Schmatlaswill nevertheless teach you quite a bit about the world around you. You’ll learn that: Chad is the place you should go if you want to take photographs of sand. Central America is the region of the world where your dreams might be realized—if you want a career as a CIA-backed military dictator. And Saint Peter and Paul Rocks, the twelve little volcanic islands located between Africa and Brazil, are where the Brazilians dump all that waxed-off pubic hair. Isn’t learning fun?
