There are thousands to pick from, but some of my favorite tidbits are the Japanese artists who carves really detailed art into watermelons, and the dental tech who draws small portraits of famous people, on teeth.
One of the more shocking facts, at least in my mind, is about a guy who tattooed his eyeball.
I enjoyed every minute of reading this book. And I got a feeling of accomplishment after finishing it. Maybe I even felt a little wiser. It's a perfect gift for adults and kids.
My large collection of BION books continues to grow,and I am always excited to find a new one being published.
The quailiy of the construction,printing,photos and illustration,continues to be as excellent as possible.Also, the things that the editors continue to bring to us keep getting better with every new book,and this one is no exception.
I have written reviews on several of the latest books,and like to talk about something different in each review. With the whole world available to look fo things to include in these books,I have noticed a lot come from Canada. The words exotic,strange,weird,amazing,etc. do not immediately come to mind when the country of Canada comes up.Quite to the contrary,Canada is about as conservative ,bland,and about as far from exotic as any country on the face of the earth, at least that is how we see ourselves ,our customs and country. Just for fun,as I went though this book I jotted down the number of times that things talked about were from Canada.I was literally shocked!! Believe It or Not!,It here were 58 of them--and Believe It or Not!,I had never heard of any of them before.Maybe another time I'll count how many things are mentioned in one of these books;it must a lot.I just made an estimate for this book using the index.There are 48 colums with about 95 items in each column --that would be about 4,560 items--Believe It or Not!.The book if loaded with hundreds of photos,again all of excellent quality.Read more ›

My daughter can't put it down. The book is really fascinating, and my daughter enjoys sharing it with us and with her friends. I also bought copies for my nephews (ages 7 and 9) and they love it too!
