Book Description

Think you can spot the fake?

Think again. It's going to be a lot harder than you think to pick out the BS. Each entry hides one well-crafted fib among a pair of unbelievable truths. And it's up to you to figure out what's fascinating and what's fabricated on everything from koala bears to Confucius to high-fructose corn syrup.

Was Cleopatra the last Egyptian pharaoh?
Can you really make diamonds out of tequila?
Is the platypus actually poisonous?

A flip of the page reveals whether you're right or wrong as well as more information on the true trivia--and why you might've fallen for the fake fact. You'll really need to know your sh*t if you plan on correctly calling bullsh*t.

5.0 out of 5 stars funny funny book November 7, 2011
Format:Paperback
Totally fun book. You find out that fortune cookies never were Chinese, and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is not the longest word in English, and that Americans eat (yes) 20 billion hotdogs per year. This book is ideal for party games or just dipping into when alone. Stewart did a great job ferreting out funny facts. Did you know that sea otters have the thickest fur of any animal in the world?

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, insightful and thought-provoking fun. December 17, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a deeply entertaining read. You can either test your own knowledge from the comfort of your tub, or pass it around at a house party and you and your friends can stump each other.

Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun read, I guess... April 4, 2012
By Swells
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll admit, I was entertained until I stopped reading just short of half-way through. I'm fairly sure that Thomas Jefferson was the second US vice president and the third President. This book says he was the third VP and fourth President. After that mistake, I lost interest.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste any time on this dumb book April 29, 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There were too many errors to make it worth finishing, as other reviewers have noted. Worthless, poorly edited junk. The author should be embarrassed.

1.0 out of 5 stars multiple inaccuracies April 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book was funny and fun to read until I got to the part about Thomas Jefferson. As another reviewer mentioned the author has the wrong facts on our THIRD president (book says 4th). Before the TJ error I had noticed a few other editing errors; some items were marked Fact but you could tell from the phrasing that they were actually the BS answer. For those it was obvious that they just got the labels mixed up and I was fairly forgiving. After seeing the TJ entry I deleted this from my Kindle (glad it was free). With a mistake on something so basic I can't trust anything the book says. Ironically I was on my way, with my family, to tour Monticello when I was reading the book.

This book incorrectly states that the original Star Wars trilogy won zero Oscars, but was only nominated for a total of 6. This is incorrect, as can easily be checked on IMDB. The original film was actually nominated for 10 Oscars, including best picture, and won 6.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed! April 26, 2012
By Dan C.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It would have been fun, but because of the mistakes I found, I now cannot trust ANY of the answers anymore. Could have used better proof-reading/editing.
