The badasses populating the pages of Badass are the most savagely awesome historical figures to ever strap on a pair of chain mail gauntlets and run screaming into battle

The badasses populating the pages of Badass are the most savagely awesome historical figures to ever strap on a pair of chain mail gauntlets and run screaming into battle.

The badasses populating the pages of Badass are the most savagely awesome historical figures to ever strap on a pair of chain mail gauntlets and run screaming into battle. Author Ben Thompson—considered by many to be the Internet’s foremost expert on badassitude—has gathered together a rogues’ gallery of butt-stomping rogues, from Julius Caesar and Genghis Khan to Blackbeard, George S. Patton, and Bruce Lee. Their bone-breaking exploits are illustrated by top artist from the fields of gaming, comics, and cards—DC Comics illustrator Matt Haley and Thomas Denmark, illustrator for the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering. This is not your boring high school history—this is tough, manly, unrelentingly Badass!

  • I love reading history books, as long as they were not approved by the Texas Board of Education(because then they aren't worth a damn, apparently). However, I understand that not everyone shares my love of historical events. A lot of history books are pretty dry, at best. At worst, they are downright boring. This is not that kind of a book. This is one of the coolest history books I've ever read. I had originally bought it for my nephew, but once I actually started perusing the pages I realized that his mother would have a massive coronary if she saw the language. Even if said language adds to the ambience.

    The author, Ben Thompson, runs a site called [...]. He searches the history books for badasses. Not all of the badasses are men, nor are they all from the 20th century, which is refreshing. Thompson relates the stories with gusto, like a teenaged/college aged boy would describe a videogame boss fight to his friends--and this generates interest. The stories of these people maintain that interest. The humor seals the deal. There may be a bit of 'embellishment' in relating the stories, but this doesn't detract in the least. And each chapter is only at most five pages long--perfect for a short attention span or when you only have a minute here or there to read. So of course, I read the whole thing in a couple of hours, with a pause here and there.

    This might be a good book for a person who doesn't read a lot to improve their reading skills with a high interest book. It would be perfect for a reader who has trouble with maintaining attention when reading. In short, this is a perfect book to encourage reading in older teenaged boys. The language is really the only thing I think that a parent might take issue with, but since the profanity is a part of the schtick and not specifically gratuitous, I wouldn't have a problem if my 15 year old decided to read it.

  • Put simply, this is a book where the author writes about 40 badasses from history, and he does so with colorful language, pop references and plenty of humor. I enjoyed it thoroughly not only because it was entertaining, but also because I learned a lot about various historical figures and events. I found myself doing quite a bit of historical research. The fact that various Sikh badasses showed up in the book was an even bigger bonus. I fully intend to purchase the second book he wrote. This isn't for everyone -- in fact I would guess that he's around my age (born 1972) based on his pop references -- but the best thing about this book is that you can simply check out his website [...]and know whether or not you will like the book, because they're the same writing style. 9/10.

  • Just a simple note to let you know that how fun this book is. It's not fancy reading, and you won't be a scholar of history when your done, but it reads like a what I imagine an old Navy Vet might talk like or perhaps a real cowboy from Texas telling you the story over a rye-whiskey! It's FUN to read, and since it's my poo-break book when I come home in the evenings, my girl often asks me through the door what is so funny as I am constantly laughing out loud, and I say "What a clever writer, he certainly has a way with descriptions!"

    Like I said, it's not definitive in a research of history like manner, thought most end of chapters have little bonus "bet you didn't know" snippets which is true, I most often didn't! Still, entertaining and quick reads make for the prefect Christmas present also as I know a guy who would find this book right up his alley!

    Have Fun!

  • My son had got a copy of this for a friend at Christmas. So when I saw it was available on Kindle I had to get a copy. First I want to say there were about two or three typos I saw when reading, but was a very minor problem. Overall I have to say that I enjoyed this book. It was great fun reading about some badasses from history. I have a degree in history and I find that books like this can sometimes spark an interest in history by showing that it is not all dry facts. Sometimes you just have to read about the people of history not just the facts, Jack. True some of these characters I have heard of but it was good to get in touch with old friends from history. Also there were some new faces to meet. If someone was to ask me about this book I would say read it and find out about some of the crazy badass people in history.

  • By the first part of this book I was growing weary of the repetitive superlatives, but overall an interesting way to present historical figures, many of whom I'd never heard. I'm a big history buff, but prefer to read a bit more on each subject. However, if you've got a young person who doesn't like history, this is a great way to grab their attention and let them know it's not all "boring."

  • Ben Thompson's "Badass" isn't just hilarious, it's educational!

    Never before have I laughed out loud so obnoxiously while learning about the same material I used to fall asleep to during long, drawn out, monotone lectures by professors with less personality than Ben Stein. This is the kind of history book I would've loved back in high school, and it even helped inspire my own humorous history blog. Badass spawned two other volumes: 'The Birth of a Legend' and 'Ultimate Deathmatch' (both of which I also highly recommend). This one highlights many key figures from Ancient Egypt to World War II including but not limited to: Leonidas, Napoleon, and Vlad the Impaler!

    Now what are you waiting for? Add it to that shopping cart! I'm waiting... any day now...
