Are you ready for the gross? The wild? The unimaginable? You haven't seen anything yet. Turn the pages --- if you dare. But watch out for...... gruesome ghosts that haunt your favorite hangouts!... disgusting scabies mites that crawl under your skin!... a belch so loud, it rivals the sound of an airplane taking off!... and more mummies, crazy cars, and peculiar people than ever! It's all weird, and it's all inside --- Believe It or Not!
I love these kind of books more so than the Guinness Book of Records, as these books contain much more interesting and bizzare facts and that makes for a far more interesting read for me.
It was good to see whilst reading through this plethora of weird facts that good ole Godzone was mentioned a few times which is always good to see.
Whilst the Publishers Note at the beginning of the book states 'While every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the entries in this book, the Publishers cannot be held responsible for any errors contained in the work' I have still decided to give it an 8 for accuracy as the guys at Ripley's generally are very good at checking their facts.
This is one good book for those that like all things Weird.
