This is as good, if not one of the best "annual" books to come out.Ripley's continues to use the finest in construction,paper,printing and color rendition available.These books are so well made,that they will last for years and will be as good and entertaining in the years to come as they are today;simply because the things Ripley's find and bring to us are timeless.I have a large collection of Ripley's books and have enjoyed them since I was a boy in the 40's.Now I have my grandchildren enjoying them as well.
There is no need to talk about any of the interesting and amazing things you're going to find in this latest book;because if you've even read one of Ripley's books,you'll know what you'll find,and be amazed once again.
However;I must point out that I am pleased that Ripley's seem to given up on putting text over photographs and colors.This seemed to have little purpose,and only made for difficult reading.Thanks for small mercies.

This rendition has many oddities pictured all under a single
roof. For instance, a 12-fingered man is shown along with
a 22 inch man weighing only 10 pounds. Lionel ,
a lion-faced man is shown in full color. The strongman,
Joe Price is pictured bending solid metal between his teeth.
The elephant-faced girl is shown, as well as Chayne Hultgren
who swallowed 27 swords simultaneously. Another man is
pictured with a unique eyeborg which is a wireless bionic
eye. The Night Shadow Extreme Motorcycle is depicted
in all of its glory. Junior Fritz's work is displayed;
whereby, cardboard is shaped into human-like masks
from the inside of toilet paper rolls.
Mauri tribes of New Zealand mummified the tattooed
heads of warrior adversaries . Facial tattoos
known as TA MOKO are shown in full color.
Bone chissels were employed to make cuts in the face.
In the 18th century, Europeans began to buy the
skulls as artifacts. TA MOKO became so popular
that tattooed enemies were killed in order to supply
the market with fresh heads.
Builder Hu Zhuyin had a lucky escape after impaling
himself on a crow bar . The solid steel crowbar
sliced through the chest missing the aorta by less than
an inch. The full color picture shows Hu Zhuyin just
prior to delicate surgery to remove the crowbar.
A number of people are shown with very exotic skin
diseases from unique infections which look like
alligator features superimposed onto human skin.Read more ›
This book is really great. It’s got a lot of interesting, and fun, and unusual, and titillating, and downright weird things in it. My favorite section was the Fantastic Food section – woo hoo!
This is a great book for those of us who remember the old Ripley's Believe It or Not! and for young readers as well. It really does have something in it for everyone. We give this book our highest recommendations!
