All the Trouble in the World: The Lighter Side of Overpopulation, Famine, Ecological Disaster, Ethnic Hatred, Plague, and Poverty

This is a paperback, not hardback edition.
I found that O'Rourke does a good job of making complicated issues understandable and funny.

Excellent information, very well written. Made me angry, that I did not learn the full story behind the French Revolution in school. I did not understand until now why or when religion, particulary Christianity had been so demonized/diminished in western Europe.
I recommend that anyone who cares about our country and the dangerous trajectory of our runaway government and the liberal media who are complicit in destroying the USA, READ THIS BOOK.

I loved this book. She has a wonderful, simple, funny writing style and is very relatable. I have spent significant time in Italy and India, so it was a wonderful way for me to revisit those places. thank you Elizabeth!

Having enjoyed Dan Brown's earlier books, I was horrified at the ending of this one-the moral 'rescue' he is espousing in this book is disturbing. I won't give away the ending, but the his 'solution' and pushing of the global population 'crisis' narrative were unbelievable to me. Dan Brown should stop playing God-or telling the reader how we should be fooled by the lack of ethics in his science/technology as God ending. Per Brown's solution, the next great scientist, world leader, etc. would likely not be born at all.

I read this as a book club choice. I was intrigued by the story; helped me to gain insight into the Asian front of WWII.
