2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mark Pack TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 26 Aug. 2010
Format: Hardcover
The book brings together bizarre and funny book titles from the English language in one slim volume. The volume is copiously illustrated with full colour front pages from the titles mentioned.

Many of the entries are highly entertaining but, as the earlier review points out, there are not that many of them. Getting the book second-hand at a much reduced price makes it a fun purchases that gives a good few laughs for the cost; buying it at full price is likely to leave you wondering if it was really worth the money.

For an alternative book along similar lines take a look at Bizarre Books - no colour illustrations and only a few black and white ones, but many more pages, each crammed with numerous amusing titles.

Made me laugh out loud! You couldn't make it up! How the authors came to choose these book titles, let alone some of the subjects, you've got to wonder. If you're amused by the offbeat, or the downright loopy, you'll enjoy this book. It's the kind of book which, any time you're feeling a bit down and have a look at, you can't help but laugh.

I love buying oddities such as this, and as this is full of other books it'll bring me know end of joy. Some rather funny titles in there that I will have to keep an eye out for elsewhere.
