Book Description

There are hundreds of interesting unsolved crimes, unexplained events, and other mysterious happenings that are fascinating to read about. Unfortunately, it's often hard to tell the difference between the actual facts of each case and the less accurate legends that have been invented around them.

In Real Mysteries, truth is separated from fiction, allowing readers to come to their own conclusions about some of the world's most astonishing mysteries. In each chapter, the author outlines the relevant facts and presents some of the most popular theories that seek to explain what happened. Finally, the author gives his own feelings on the subject. Ultimately, it's up to the reader to decide whether they agree with his conclusions, or if there's another explanation that seems more likely.

In total, eight mysteries are discussed in Real Mysteries, including the following:

- The Mysterious D. B. Cooper
- The Lead Masks Case
- The Skull of Doom
- Taman Shud
- The Dyatlov Pass Incident

Real Mysteries is the first in a series of books that will discuss a variety of mysteries both solved and unsolved. Future editions will cover topics including Aliens and UFOs, Secret Societies, Monsters, and Mysterious Locations.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new, mildly interesting, 2 1/2 stars 31 Oct. 2014

As I dig back through my kindle library, I'm stopping to read books that I have absolutely no memory of purchasing. "Real Mysteries" was one. According to Amazon, I picked it up two years ago during a non-fiction binge that included Ancient Mysteries: Discover the latest intriguiging, Scientifically sound explinations to Age-old puzzles and 13 Things That Don't Make Sense: The Most Baffling Scientific Mysteries of Our Time Trust me- although more expensive, either of those is a much more interesting and enjoyable choice than "Real Mysteries".

There is absolutely nothing in this book that you can't pick up through a casual internet search. The author did no independent research, didn't interview any of the principles, talk to experts, nothing. This is just a brief compilation of widely available information and the author's own opinion of what might have happened.

This isn't the worst book I've ever read by any means. Mr. Scimia has an affable style and doesn't introduce any pseudo-science or expound silly theories. So if you aren't averse to spending three dollars for an hour of mildly linteresting reading, you might enjoy it. But I think that I've just spent more time writing this review than the author spent on the book......

2.0 out of 5 stars Too short for the price 28 April 2013
By Peter Hausamann - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read many books on 'the mysterious' and came across most of the stories covered. I found the author lacking in his research. He does not cover all the details that may have strong bearing on the cases. Edward even misses some important points from his own conclusions, as well as his biased opinions. Maybe it is those opinions that censored some of his own research. But more disappointing was the fact that the book only covered several mystery cases. I read the whole book in a few hours.
After reading the poorly researched cases, from a minimal content book - I felt ripped-off.
