Reviews

Praise for How to Take Over the World

"Comic book fans will fall hard for this delightfully daffy guidebook. . . . Exuberant, optimistic, and just plain fun, How to Take Over the World will both surprise and delight." --Esquire

"An eclectic journey, full to the brim with North's trademark sarcasm and humor. An excellent starting point for anyone interested in learning more about cutting edge science or becoming a supervillain." --Booklist

"Witty and deviously delightful. I never knew reading about becoming a supervillain could feel so wholesome!" --Simone Giertz

"How to Take Over the World isn't just an amazing how-to manual, it's a fun, insightful look into our place on the planet and in time. I found myself thinking about it for weeks after. Honestly, I think it changed my life!" --Chip Zdarsky, writer for Daredevil, Spider-Man: Life Story, and Howard the Duck

"This book is so brilliant that it's frankly suspicious. Nobody should be surprised when Ryan North inevitably does take over the world. If this wildly entertaining, whip-smart, and hilarious book is his confession, he's more than capable of it. And now, thanks to reading it... so am I." --Elan Mastai, author of All Our Wrong Todays

"I can attest that How to Take Over the World is both a) filled with actual science (including linguistics!) and b) hilarious." --Gretchen McCulloch, New York Times-bestselling author of Because Internet

"How to Take Over the World lays out a hilarious, but totally factual, blueprint for all the ways aspiring supervillains could seize power, control minds and dominate the earth. It's a little dangerous, but all in good fun--so long as Pinky and the Brain don't catch wind of it. --BookPage
