As bad as it gets …

… Easy to Put Down - Taki's Magazine - Taki's Magazine. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The book is so badly written that it would be almost invidious to choose to quote one passage rather than another. As the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins put it in another context, “No worst, there is none.” In Professor MacCormack’s book, everything is worst.

Dave suggests reviving  The Bad Writing Contest.
