    Stephen Pile, who has spent much of his life 'collecting stories of comic catastrophe', presents the best of the worst from his three books of Heroic Failures. Among the topics featured are 'New World Records', including the fastest knock-out in a boxing debut (the fighter knocked himself out after 47 seconds) and 'Law and Order' (here we meet the bank robbers who got stuck in the bank's revolving doors).
