Una selección de los mejores 50 personajes célebres que han pasado o pasarán por el programa de RAC 1, en la sección de Malcolm Otero y Santi Giménez dedicada a elogiar la mala reputación de la gente, descubrir los claroscuros de personajes que han sido fundamentales para la humanidad escribiendo, actuando, componiendo, haciendo deporte y que son idolatrados.

Malcolm Otero y Santi Giménez no soportan a los ídolos. Pueden admirar, pero siempre con el freno de mano puesto.

Como decía Billy Wilder, nadie es perfecto, y en este libro nos descubren que una cincuentena de los personajes más ilustres de la humanidad también han sido execrables. El nivel va desde premios Nobel hacia arriba. Destacan adicciones, escaso respeto por la propiedad privada (es decir, ladrones), agresores, violentos, racistas, envidiosos, trepas... A pesar de todo, los autores admiran a estos personajes porque son el pilar que ha construido el paisaje cultural de nuestra vida.

Eso sí: el simple hecho de ser famoso no da derecho a entrar en el club de los execrables. Aquí no caben aquellos famosos que ya de por sí caen mal y cuyas fechorías ya son de todos conocidas.

Malcolm Otero y Santi Giménez se convierten en detectives de la historia y nos hablan de primeras espadas mundiales -de las cuales no se ha contado nunca toda la verdad- de una forma mordaz, irónica y con brillantes golpes de ingenio y de humor, componiendo un libro que arrastrará a los incondicionales del programa de radio y a un público ávido de entretenimiento.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

"A selection of the best 50 famous personalities who have gone through or will go through the RAC 1 program, in Malcolm Otero and Santi Giménez's selection dedicated to praising people's bad reputations, discover the chiaroscuro of personalities who have been essential for humanity in writing, acting, composing, sports.... and who are worshipped.
 
Malcolm Otero and Santi Giménez can't stand idols. They can admire them, but always with the breaks on.  
 
As Billy Wilder used to say, no one is perfect, and on this list we discover that fifty of the most illustrious personalities in all humanity have also been terrible. The level goes from Nobel prizes winners upward. Addicts, people with little respect for private property (that is, thieves), aggressors, violence seekers, racists, greedy people, opportunists all stand out... Despite everything, the authors admire all of these personalities because they are the pillars upon which the cultural landscape of our lives has been built.
 
That's right: the simple fact that you are famous doesn't give you the right to get into the club of the abominables. Here there isn't room for those famous people who are just unlikable and whose mischief is already well known.
 
Malcolm Otero and Santi Giménez make themselves detectives of history and talk to us about the world's aces of spades- of whom the whole truth has never been told- in a sarcastic and ironic way and with brilliant stokes of genius and humor, composing a book that will drag along the radio program's stalwarts and an audience eager for entertainment."
