This book is the bomb! If you love Ripley's like I do you will so love this book. The pictures are large colorful and the special pull-out sections, especially on the Titanic facts are way so cool. I can spend hours looking at and reading this book and always go back to it again and again. It now sits on my coffee table where my guests just cannot resist a peek, while my son loves to grab it now and then and try to gross me out with specific stories I tend to avoid. I have caught on and now when he asks, "did you read about?." I always say yes as he feels it is hysterically funny to gross me out.

Ripley's has come a long way since the days since my first reading of its paperback in grade school. In fact this latest release of "Download the Weird" has a twist that will excite its readers and Wow them in a new way. I was able to actually download the weird with the brand new Ripley's Believe It or Not oddScan App. This app allows hidden content in the book to Come Alive! All you have to do is point a Smartphone or an advanced Ipad at the special oddScan logos you find throughout the book to see that particular story come to life. You then receive exclusive bonus content including videos and images. The new Ripley's Believe It or Not! app is FREE and available through both iTunes and Google Play. The oddscan does in no way take away from the nostalgia of Ripley's, as even though it is a highly advanced version compared to the first copy of Ripley's I viewed at in 5th grade it is more exciting than ever.

And lets not forget how this title is jam-packed with everything that makes Ripley's the best-selling series it is. This copy includes a brilliant contrasting colored cover, with eye-catching holographic foil and lenticular.

This book is by far, the best Ripley's book to date. I got my copy autographed by Lizardman at the Orlando ODDitorium and it is by far, the coolest book ever. Definitely worth the purchase and it would make a great Christmas gift for the little ones. Here is a review I foundonlie:

Format: Hardcover
If you have been a fan of Ripley's Books in the past, this book takes it to the next level of weird (thus the title). There are some very strange and some disturbing stories within this book that will make you look twice and sometimes even cringe (or at least I did). What makes this book different is not the vibrant color photos (which are amazing though), but instead in my perspective it is the OddScan logos, which are like QR Codes dispersed throughout the book. These codes, along with your IPhone or Android Device will make the book come alive (for better or worse). The book is truly a one of the kind collection of the strange, but for me, it was still fun (though I know I will not be doing mostly any of the things in this book - at least not now).

so my son takes a popcicle to school in his backpack and is surprised when it explodes all over his books. I got a call from the librarian telling me I need to replace two of his books. sticker price was like $400. thank you amazon! although my son will be paying his allowance back for the better part of the near future, at least we got a great deal on his replacement books.

Just when you think Ripley's have done everything possible with these great and exciting books;they have made another amazing introduction.Now you can download a free APP and activate the ODD SCAN feature to unlock amazing additional content from within the pages of this book.Wherever you see the ODD SCAN icon,you can scan the page with your phone and POW!,incredible extra pictures and videos will appear!
As to the book itself,Ripley's continues to provide unbelievable,but true facts,photographs,illustrations and information about unusual things from all over the world.Ripley's continues to package all this amazing stuff in a book that uses the best materials,construction,paper,printing and construction available ;and at what is an amazingly reasonable cost.
I won't even begin to describe some of the unbelievable things you'll read about and feast your eyes on the pictures,simply because there are so many to choose from.
As one of the other Reviewers has mentioned;I also became a Ripley addict back when the cartoons were carried in my local paper and fell in love with the first hardcover book published in 1930 and the wonderful paperbacks published in the 40's.Who would ever have believed that those black and white illustrations and books would continue to improve to what we get today in these beautifully illustrated color hardcovers.Although my local papers no longer carry the cartoons,which by the way are still produced,one can still have them sent as an e-mail every day ,and free no less.
Thanks Ripley Publishing and the wonderful staff for continuing to produce these entertaining ,interesting and fascinating books.Ripley's Believe It or Not! is an exceptional part of American culture and Ripley himself would be thrilled to see how well what he created ,has continued to improve and carry on.Believe It or Not!.
