I got this book as a gift. It's cute.
At first, for a few seconds, I thought these facts are real. Well, ha ha, it's a joke book, but funny made up facts about pandas, and really cute "photoshopped" photos of pandas doing stuff.
An early page has Nancy Reagan petting a panda that helped save her husband's life. The writers claim that panda fur made the fabric in the tie her husband wore when he was shot and it saved his life, because panda material is bullet proof.
Another is a blindfolded panda will always face north, and is magnetic, showing a photo of a cub with paper clips and metal pieces stuck to him. CUTE.
I'm only half-way through it. I'm trying to save it.
Each page has a photo. Nice medium small square size.
If you have a panda lover in your life, buy it for them.

I love this book! The pictures and writing are hilarious. Anyone who is familiar with David O'Doherty will appreciate this book. I also love the thought that some people are buying this book not realizing that they are all made up facts. Anyone who actually gets upset about that needs to grow a sense of humor.

If you did read the part of the description that reads:

"Smart, funny, and chock-full of panda pictures, 100 Facts About Pandas will astonish and entertain both animal lovers and everyone who laughed their way through The Book of Bunny Suicides and F U, Penguin."

And STILL didn't catch on it was satire...then you need an enlightenment...

I never realized what mysterious and likable creatures Pandas are. Nature is truly majestic. I read this book in the quiet car of my train and even though some incredibly rude man's keyboard started blasting Mozart from the overhead compartment when some other rube bumped it I still stayed glued to the page. I have saved the last 7 Panda facts for the future as life is not worth living without something to look forward to. Thank you Mr O'Doherty. You and your fellow researchers have compiled an extraordinary book that I will not soon forget.

My little brother actually presented most of these facts to his 3rd grade class and when he started to tell me how pandas smell through their ears and hear from their nose I had to look up where they came from. It took me awhile to explain to him how these aren't actual facts and that this book is for the laughs and it sure did make me laugh. I love it! I am planning on getting him a hard copy for his birthday just so he can laugh about it now since he is older.

This book was the funniest thing we've seen in years! It's full of incredibly bad@$$ "panda facts"...which are just close enough to believable that it took us half the book to decide that they MUST be made up!

Example (from memory, so I assure you it's funnier in the book): Panda skin is bulletproof. There was a story to go with this, but I don't recall it. :D

Highly recommended for any panda lover with a healthy sense of humor!

OK step one it not a true book about pandas, do not try to run around impressing your friends with your knowledge
that pandas have a phobia of fish!!

Now that's out of the way.... the book is amazing, I love it!!! I live in America and heard about it on some random show, and being me I thought, a total fictional book about panda... I need that!!! So I bought 4 copies of it. Thinking it's not very expensive and it could make good gifts.
Will I was right, I gave one to my friend before I even started reading it and she loved it. She wanted to give a copy to her dad so I gave her another one. I started reading the 3 copy it and it was as I thought amazing!! Full of wit and humor I loved it. I ended up giving out all my copies =(
but everyone has loved it!!! I'm planning on buying one more seeing as how I no longer own one=(

Oh one more thing read it in order its much funnier that way!!!

Arrived on time and in good condition! I was amazed that I got a new book for this price! I ended up gifting it to someone at a party while in a less sober state of mind and it seemed to bring them joy. Totally worth purchasing for a good laugh.
