Ventura sorts her bag of trivia into chapters with titles such as 'Yo, Ho and Up She Rises: Stories from the Sea,' 'Haunted Hollywood,' 'On the Road: Tales from Haunted Highways and Byways,' 'Naturally Strange,' 'Blood-Red Crosses and Gross Anatomy: Hospital Horrors,' 'Strange America,' etc.
Among the trivia bits to be found in the book are scary amusement rides, the Thames River Frost Fair, the Arizona woman who had a worm living in her head, the five most dangerous magic tricks, the 1919 Boston molasses disaster, animal symbols, bat bombers, the strange names celebs give to their offspring, America's Cheasie lake monster, ancient Roman cures for baldness, etc.
Hardcore trivia buffs will be familiar with some of the material found in BEYOND BIZARRE. However, there's enough new items to make Ventura's book an appealing - and inexpensive ($6.98 at B&N) - purchase. Recommended.
There is another book like this by the same author which was also A great read.
Get them both!!!
