A storm is brewing in the confines of a London dinner party. Small talk quickly descends into a verbal and intellectual battle between science and belief, as comedian Tim goes head to head with the mysterious fifth guest at the table - a hippy named Storm.

With stunning original artwork, Tim's sublime ranty beat-poem weaves through the world we live in, where alternative medicine is given credence and public funding, psychics have primetime TV exposure and people are happy with mystery rather than answers.

While Storm herself may not be converted, audiences from London to Sydney have been won over by Tim's lyrical wonders and the timely message of the piece in a society where science is attacked as the enemy of belief. STORM is the illustrated book born from the acclaimed internet sensation - the animation that has become an anthem for critical thinking worldwide, attracting over three million views. Now fully reimagined, STORM is a masterpiece that sparkles with beauty, wit, reason and rationality.

A great book that really says everything I've thought in similar situations when you have to make nice to people who are clearly idiots. Just because it is socially unacceptable to flat out contradict morons at a dinner party. Read full review

It's almost staggering just how bad the artwork is. They not only are completely unable to draw human figures or facial expressions, at any level of caricature, but they have no sense of aesthetics's just plain ugly to look at. I've known high school students who could carve better artwork into a desktop with a compass.
If you want to see Minchin's remarkable poem, watch it for free on Youtube. Don't waste your money on this garbage.
