ACS Cobham teacher, Adam Powell, publishes debut non-fiction title
'History's Worst, 2000 Years of Idiocy.'

Local History teacher, Adam Powell from ACS Cobham International School, has recently published his first non-fiction book, 'History's Worst, 2000 years of Idiocy' which is now available to download through Amazon's Kindle App.

Students finally persuaded Adam to write his first book after he began using some of History's most idiotic anecdotes to illustrate his lessons. Some of his students' favourite stories are included in the book, such as the exploding dog regiment and the king who thought he was made of glass.

Adam, who has taught at ACS Cobham for twenty years, originally started his career as a journalist writing satirical pieces for 'The Voice of Reason', 'Deadbrain','The Daily Bull' and 'Humorfeed.' He was also included in the 'People of Few Words humour anthology.'

Adam commented:

'I've always collected interesting stories for my History classes, some amusing, some striking, hopefully drawing people into my subject. I found that soon after I started conducting further research I had enough tales to fill a book and 'History's Worst' was born! The book aims to appeal to all readers, not just history buffs, as its full of funny and compelling anecdotes which I hope people will enjoy'.

Adam's title has been published as an e-book, which is available to download through Amazon's Kindle App on computer and tablet.
