    The Book of Bizarre Truths is a massive 74-page hardcover book crammed with fascinating articles, lists, quotes, and anecdotes about a wide range of topics. Do cows cause global warming? What's the smelliest thing on the planet? Do woodpeckers get headaches? This book wittily answers these and hundreds of other provocative questions. The book's writers apply their smart, clever, and respected voices to demystify urban legends and inform on everything from the strange to the sublime. A wide range of topics are covered, including the animal kingdom, health, origins, traditions, science, history, geography, sports, people, and food. Some of the other questions that are tackled: * Can the metal plate in Uncle Ed's head get rusty? * How many ants make a full meal for an anteater? * How late is fashionably late? * Do important people still have food tasters? * And why are there only two sexes? Readers who want to have some laughs and learn something along the way won't be able to get enough of The Book of Bizarre Truths. Adding to the fun are dozens of humorous illustrations. The bottom line? Everyone will find something of interest in these pages. Gorgeous leatherette binding with gilded accents makes The Book of Bizarre Truths a handsome addition to your library.

    It's natural for the mind to wander, and it's perfectly normal to be curious about the world around us: What Hollywood star used her twin sister as her body double in a film? How do card sharks mark a deck? Where in California can you find the world's oldest living tree? Which U.S. president spent some pre-politics time as a male model? This gargantuan, 74-page hardcover book is chock-full of that information and more, covering pop culture, nature, technology, food, sports, art, history, religion, crime, and tales of the just plain weird. Learn about the strange collaboration between surrealist painter Salvador DalI and comedy icon Harpo Marx. Read about what it was like to live during the London Blitz, and debunk popular urban legends. Get lassoed into facts about fascinating wedding customs around the world, and discover the reason behind one of the deadliest fires in American history. Prepared to get lost perusing page after page of unusual facts, enthralling stories, and amusing anecdotes-because The Book of Extraordinary Facts will keep you busy for hours!
