I bought a copy of this book after hearing stories from it on the "Skeptics With A K" podcast. Every episode the host would read out a 'fact' from the book, and the others would have to guess whether it was true or not. It was great to finally read the facts for myself, and I was not disappointed. It is for the most part an unremitting cavalcade of relentless drivel, but the energy and vigour with which the stories are written is superb. The illustrations only add to the sense of wonderment and fun that the book delivers. Gilbert Einstein would approve!
