This copious compendium of all things odd could only have come from the people at Ripley's. Every page is brimming with information and eye-popping artwork, covering the extremes of every subject imaginable. Coincidences, survival, human anatomy, explorers, villains, laws, medicine, science, sports, war, weather--these are just a few of the topics explored in this unique volume.

This one-of-kind book has proved itself to be a formidable rival of the Guinness Book of World Records and will be welcomed by many fans of the Ripley's TV shows, museums, and syndicated newspaper features worldwide. The new edition is a great value for the money--a full-color hardcover at a paperback price.

Sometimes interesting, sometimes gross, sometimes poorly researched (Ripley's has begun many urban legends that refuse to die). It's still a good read; just verify your own research before quoting it! Read full review
