Pressestimmen

“Be afraid: Henry Beard and Christopher Cerf’s Encyclopedia Paranoiaca is deadly to the humor averse.” (Vanity Fair)

Encyclopedia Paranoiaca . . . [is] the only guide to super-paranoia that you’ll ever need. . . .While the authors’ tongues couldn’t be more firmly in cheek from first entry to last, Encyclopedia Paranoiaca is written and compiled with scrupulous attention and extensive research. . . . Start worrying now.” (The Scientific American)

“An amusing and cruelly accurate cultural critique, offering a “comprehensive and authoritative inventory of the perils, menaces, threats, blights, banes, and other assorted pieces of Damoclean cutlery” that hover over our collective head. . . . Beard and Cerf gleefully fan the flames of our paranoia” (The Wall Street Journal)

“A humorous look at all of the ways, obvious and not, that humans have of doing harm to themselves. . . . The writing is witty and verbose, almost Monty Python-ish, but the science is good enough that hypochondriacs should be shielded from this book at all costs.” (The Daily Beast)

“The madcap brainchild of National Lampoon alums Henry Beard and Christopher Cerf, Encyclopedia Paranoiaca comprises a smartly researched, apocalyptic alphabet of exotic and everyday dangers and dreads—from bananas to fracking to sleeping on your back—that is scary, amusing, and informative.” (Elle)

“Perversely enjoyable.” (Details magazine (No. 1 in "Five Things We Emphatically Endorse"))

“What we think is healthful and harmless may well be deadly, or at least harmful, say the humorists. They’ve compiled a long list of everyday foods (cherries, carrots), clothing (skinny jeans, flip-flops) and items (drinking straws) that we can now worry about like never before. Thanks, guys.” (The Sacramento Bee)

“Despite its presentation of contemporary dangers, the book is charmingly old-fashioned, with a structure and format that pay tribute to the reference books that lined the shelves of academics and nerds before the Internet reshaped the personal library. . . . Beard and Cerf write with wit in this ironic take on a world where we live in constant fear of dairy products, lemon wedges, shopping carts, and vitamins.” (Publishers Weekly)

A MUST in a dangerous world 21. November 2012
Von Jane Aaron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Encyclopedia Paranoiaca's brilliant cross referencing led me easily from the dangers of aspartame to the dangers of sugar which led to the dangers of exercise which referenced directly to the dangers of air purifiers then warned me of the dangers of air fresheners which in turn told me of the dangers of laser printers. In this world filled with danger Encyclopedia Paranoiaca is indispensable.

Worry, Worry, Toil and Trouble - Must Read 3. Dezember 2012
Von James E. Tierney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
In my home state of Maine, if the tourists do not come every summer we know that our economy will collapse and we will starve. We also know that if the toursits do come, we will be miserable because our iconoclastic way of life will destroyed by these strangers who trample our shores.

The only way to reconcile ourselves to this conundrum - and to so many more - is to curl up in front of a wood stove (that is undoubtedly polluting my farmhouse air) on a too warm (global warming induced)December day and read this marvelous compendium of brilliantly cross referenced truths.

Reading the Encyclopedia Parandiaca is also a great way for me to recall my sweet mother who would have believed every single word had she lived. Of course, she didn't, and you might not either unless you memorize this book.

Unusual book 28. Dezember 2012
Von Walter Figel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Just as advertised. Alphabetical listing of hundreds of things to be concerned about AND the reasons why. Well written and appears to be politically neutral. Loaded with facts, reasons, conclusions, and warnings. Lots of stuff you would never think of by yourself. Great to read in small doses and open discussion topics with friends.
