This book, while a bit short, has a plethora of different facts and stories that range from the strange to the unbelievable. From a story about a dead man being preserved in a barrel of alcohol then the train workers (who were transporting him to his hometown)drinking said alcohol to a certain band member of the Sex Pistols ejaculating into a bread roll then having a fellow band member eat it unwittingly to stories of Victorian women who would take men and ride them like horse and joust on them this little book continues to be entertaining and interesting and mildly disturbing. It's title really does say it all. If your thinking of getting it as a gift or for yourself I wouldn't hesitate to do so. My only complaint with the book at all would be that it's a bit on the short side, easily read in about an hour or so, but it is a book that's meant to be read again and again so it doesn't bother me all that much. A great book and a great choice if you buy, I promise you you won't regret it.

Format: Paperback
This little tome is rather innocous ,being shocking pink,with its lily white title and dainty pink ribbon bookmark.But that is where all civility,good taste and even common decency ends with this little gem.
The book is somewhat along the lines of "Ripley's Believe It or Not!";but much of the stuff in this book is so gross that it is even beyond the pale,of what Ripley's gives us.
All the things described really happened and many are even more shocking when you see they were carried out by some of history's most famous people. Not only that,these things happened ,almost as normal in the past and by some of what we think as history's most civilised countries and cultures. Many of the things you will learn about here,probably for the first time and will surprise,and even shock you;
Let me give you a taste (and it is really Bad) of some of what you will find;

Robert the Bruce,King of Scotland,died of leprosy aged 55.

Albert Einstein's eyes were removed by his ophthalmologist Dr.Henry Abrams during the autopsy in 1955 and stored in a safety deposit box.The eyes were put up for auction in 1994.

During widespread food shortages in Cuba in 1994 the cat population fell by 400,000.

In 1994 Peter Weiller,a German film-goer,was beaten to death by ushers in a Bonn cinema because he had brought his own popcorn.

Elizabethan women drank the urine of puppy dogs to improve their complexions.

King Edward II was assassinated by having a red hot poker thrust up his rectum.

Pope John XIII (965-972) was murdered by an irate husband who discovered His Holiness on top of his wife.

Nelson Rockefeller,a former US vice-president,died aged 71 while copulating with his mistress.

There you have it;and that doesn't even scratch the surface of what this book has in store fo you.

This little book is packed with awesome tidbits you probably didn't know about famous people and cultures throughout the world, past and present. From disgusting cuisine to the top ten worst ways to die, this book has it all. It's great as a gift for people who love to increase their trivia and useless knowledge, makes for great conversation.
