Book: A Brief History of Tim

Time, minus 'e'
Yes, it's not misspelled. And it's not Hawking's famous book. Humour rather than serious; the extreme contrast. Just by removing a letter of a word.
Simply amazing.
Humour, to me, can only be churned out by a creative person. The writer has to weave together a lot of different ideas, common knowledge, history (at times), current issues, and a dash of personality. I rarely read humour books, but this one caught my attention. I really like this one.
I got a taste of it at a book sale held at KL Sentral concourse. I was browsing for some other books that may be of my interest, and I had a quick skimming on this one. Right there and then, I was smiling and chuckling, not bothered about the world spinning around at that time. It is simply hilarious based on a simple idea and the contentes are brilliantly thought of.
Have a go on a few pages of it here.
Unfortunately it was one of those times when I said to myself "this can be picked up later". And I lost it. Perhaps it's the only copy there.
If you do find a copy, please let me know where to get it from, preferably locally (KL, JB, Seremban). Else I have to resort to online ordering.
