探索世界,看透超過百種瘋狂、怪異的奇異習俗和賽事
「本書充滿純粹的歡樂和特殊的文化習俗,透過幽默的訊息圖表,一同發現世界的奇妙大小事。」 ─百大漫畫《坦克女孩》作者Julius Wiedemann


不論是丟冷凍老鼠大賽、蝸牛競速還是扛老婆大賽,人類總是透過各種瘋狂、怪異的習俗和比賽展現他們無窮的創意。為了向人類長遠而古老的習俗致意,知名平面設計師Nigel Holmes探索全球,發現各種令人困惑不已卻又充滿歡樂的習俗和比賽,透過詳盡的圖表和插畫設計,展示超過百種令人驚呼又瘋狂的競賽。

讀者將發現英國威爾斯的沼澤浮潛大賽、美國吞熱狗大賽,或是日本最快讓嬰兒大哭的荒謬比賽。本書結合歡樂與溫暖,透過各種奇異的習俗讓人類彼此更靠近,探索一場又一場充滿勇氣、耐力和純粹為了打發時間的大小活動,歡慶各種傳統習俗的美好與帶給人們的無限樂趣。

Whether it’s flinging frozen rats or parading in holly evergreens, racing snails or carrying wives, human beings have long displayed their creativity in wild, odd, and sometimes just wonderful rituals and competitions. To show what lengths we’ll go to uphold our eccentric customs, British American graphic designer Nigel Holmes channels his belief in the power of hilarity to bring together a bewilderingly funny tour around the globe in search of incredible events, all dryly explained with brilliant infographics in WOW! 100 Crazy Contests and Celebrations from around the World.

You’ll encounter the startling facts behind peat-bog snorkelling in Wales (wet suits recommended), hotdog-swallowing in the USA (tip: avoid breakfast), or who can make a baby cry quickest in Japan. Through this gallimaufry of gamesmanship and passion, an endearingly warm and affectionate portrait of human endeavor and good humor emerges as Holmes proves, page after page, that when it comes to feats of bravery, endurance, or sheer nonsense, the world is united as one in the fine, and often hilarious, way of celebrating culture.

“This book is all about the infinite joie de vivre that cultures across the world can offer. Through humorous infographics, Nigel Holmes reveals how humankind is united by the spirit of good-natured competition.”
