The Worst Person in the World And 202 Strong Contenders
by Keith Olbermann
John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Published September 2006 - Hardcover - 267 pages - $22.95

At last, someone willing to speak (or write) their mind.  Our planet is filled with idiots and people with little regard for others and I too, have my own list (nowhere near the 200 mark!) of "worst" people in the world.  Starting in July 2005 and going until June 2006, Mr. Olbermann lists his winners of the Bronze, Silver, and the Winner under many different headings.  A tongue-in-cheek collection of people who basically, through words or actions, put themselves on his list.  And the lists do not solely represent celebrities, they include people from all walks of life who made up each day's countdown on Mr. Olbermann's "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" newscast show.  Some people win the Worst Person in the World title more than once.  Could it get any worse than even just being considered for the title, let alone more than once?  These titles are not limited to people per se, companies and groups are considered as well.  In fact, anyone doing something ridiculously stupid or inconsiderate runs the Olbermann risk.  "They aren't really the worst persons in the word, of course", says Olbermann, but it's the best he has, and it's fun.  However, the book should have been called "Bill O'Reilly's Snafus".
Conclusion - Entertaining and very observant.
