One day a prehistoric guy picked up a rock and threw it at something. And the history
of weapons began. Comedy writer and weapon nerd John O’Bryan relays the freaky
highlights of man’s centuries-old obsession with weaponry. He hilariously explains the
mace, the morning star, and the man catcher, while conveying factual information
about each weapon: its history, uses, and badass potential. Flipping through history’s
highlights, readers will learn about Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, and the
“peaceful” Shaolin monks. This ultimate compendium of awesome
weapons delivers all the surprisingly true details sure to
impress anybody who’s ever made a gun with their
fingers and said, “PEW-PEW-PEW!”
John O’Bryan has written for Nickelodeon’s Avatar:
