Customer Reviews

Very interesting and FUNNY facts!
Kassandra N. Bugarine
I found the author's attempt to make a joke out of every one of the "facts" to be tiring and usually not funny.
Michael H. Cady
It does make for great bathroom reading too.

I've been an avid reader of Cary's McNeal's "List of the Day" blog for a while now. As soon as I saw this book on LOTD, I quickly ordered my own copy. This book is hilarious - yet informative. Cary has a witty one-liner (or two) about each fact, and I can't tell you how many times I laughed out loud while reading. As a librarian, I appreciate how Cary listed the source for each fact, so the reader, if so inclined, could do additional research if he/she so desired. There are chapters such as food, bugs, and one of my favs, "weirdest of the weird." I'm very pleased with this book, and although I don't keep it in the bathroom, it has earned a place on my nightstand.

A friend recommended that I buy this book. I checked out McNeal's blog before ordering the book. I immediately noticed the man is not right in the head, which is something I really respect in a writer. Now I own the book and will probably buy copies for my sick friends. It's worth the price. Even better than I anticipated.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sure to make you laugh, this unique trivia book contains 1,001 scary, odd, revolting, and bizarre documented facts about the world. Along with each fact is a tidbit of humorous commentary from the author, Cary McNeal.

McNeal's witty wisecracks will keep you chortling, snickering, and snorting to the very end of the book. His clever use of sarcasm, puns, put-downs, hyperbole, word play, extended gags, and outright silliness will entertain and amuse you.

Those who are already fans of McNeal's writing won't be disappointed. Those unfamiliar with his caustic wit should visit his blog, List Of The Day, for further amusement.

This book is fun to read and has some amazing facts in it. Unfortunately the author felt the need to try and be a comedian on every fact. The majority of the time his little personal addition was stupid and a complete waste of time and ink. The book would have been much more enjoyable with out it.

I found the author's attempt to make a joke out of every one of the "facts" to be tiring and usually not funny. I would have preferred just describing the scary facts and not try to me funny.

I ordered this as a gift for my impossible-to-buy-for brother, and it came last night. I looked through it, and I really wish I'd bought one for myself! The facts are really off the wall, and the humorous portions are funnier than you would expect. Can't wait to borrow it!

This book has some fun facts, and it is one of the few I've seen that actually cites it's references right under each fact. That is pretty refreshing. The Kindle format is a little hard to get used to at first, it takes a couple of pages, but once you get in the flow of it, most people will like that the references are also listed under each fact.
