Ricky Gervais presents The World of Karl Pilkington is a book containing a collection of the best moments from The Ricky Gervais Show podcast with additional musings and original drawings by Karl Pilkington. In this book, Karl is in conversation with the often bewildered Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, outwitting them with his take on such contentious issues as charity, the lack of Chinese homeless people, re-incarnation, the rights of monkeys and his favourite superpowers. The book features Karl's original illustrations, imaginative scribblings, and the best conversations of the first 12 podcasts.
