"Atlas, Schmatlas: A Superior Atlas of the World" is 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 - Schmatlas has 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, Schmatlas will 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?
