We then move onto Amazing Earth where natural phenomenon are explained as well as towns where people live underground and the like. Body and Mind is the next chapter presenting more piercings, fertility statues, little kids weightlifting, lips pierced with big objects and the like. Wonders of Science covers online auctions, man made body parts, gene alterations, breeding different animals together, robots, inventions and so on. Next the reader journeys to Extraordinary Animals, which is pretty self explanatory looking at some of the adaptations of different animals. Fun and Games deals with the bizarre things people collect, biggest shoe ever made and things like this. Arts and Entertainment looks at sculptures and even functional devices made from rubbish, jellybeans well a large range of things along with movies, plays and the like. The final chapter Beyond Understanding takes the reader to outer space, aliens, ghosts and the like.
An interesting read!
At least we still have these wonderful books Ripley's keep publishing.I look forward to each new one and buy them all. I have a large number of Ripley books,including those little paperbacks ,which are real gems.
One of my favorite Ripley books is; "Ripley-The Modern Marco Polo- The Life and Times of the Creator of 'Believe It or Not'" by Bob Considine ;of Baseball fame and a great pal of Ripley ;published in 1961. It describes the life that Ripley led, which was as unbelievable as his cartoons.It's worth the effort to find it.
This latest "Believe It or Not! is another excellent production in the long enjoyed series of publications. The Ripley people have maintained the highest standards in bringing the world's greatest oddities to us;and these high standards are continued in this book.
If you are a Ripley Fan;don't miss it!
