Inappropriate Authors

(Alternative Thread Title: Shortest Book Ever)

The Elon Musk Book of Baby Names
Nigel Farage’s Tact And Diplomacy
The Jair Bolsonaro Guide to Epidemiology
The Britney Spears Guide to Semiconductor Physics

(That last one is genuine, although it is a website rather than a book)

You can be light-hearted, pointed or savage depending on your choice of author / their particular notoriety / the sort of day you’ve been having.

Important subset:
You may want to interpret the shortest book as SUCCINCT: the why-am-I-having-to-write-this-book-for-the-benefit-of-the-inert? An example of this would be:

Marcus Rashford: Outwitting Westminster

    @David, this crosses the line into personal attack. If you want to comment negatively on another shipmate's posting style, the Ship's rules state that only place for that is in hell. Please don't do it here.
