Supervillain:The Concise Guide by Ras Ashcroft
Are you tired of living a humdrum life? Is there little to look forward to except a dead-end job and more news headlines that remind you of your insignificance in the world? Do you think the future of humanity depends on your potent leadership skills? Well forget about the nonsense of running for political office and become a supervillain instead.
Fancy degrees and qualifications are not required. With this concise guide, you will learn all the basic tricks of the trade. Ease into your first seedy business, create a large organisation with interests in finance, media and politics, and build a powerful military force. Eventually you will launch your crusade to rule the entire planet.
Take your shot at world domination – and hit the bull’s-eye
Overall this is a short entertaining read. I thought that some sections were more entertaining than others and the more you get into the book the funnier it gets. The first section more about finances and gaining allies and partners than anything, was not as upbeat to me as the rest of it, but I thought after that section it became more and more outrageous concepts until at last, the super villain gains a spot viewing all of Earth as a whole in outer-space to have more control on all aspects of the world.
It's a cheap purchase on ebook and had a lot of humor and some interesting ideas.
