Description

A hilarious, fascinating and alternative history of bad behaviour, from an editor at Cracked. Part history lesson, part how-to guide, A Brief History of Vice includes interviews with experts and original experimentation to bring readers a history of some of humanity's most prominent vices, along with explanations for how each of them helped humans rise to the top of the food chain. Readers won't just learn about the beer that destroyed South America's first empire - they'll learn how to make it at home!
