If you didn't catch the title, I've got ADHD and it's very hard to just sit down and read any old thing. So why not read EVERYTHING AT ONCE? And that's what this book is for. My only complaint is that i finished it. :(

Scared Sh*tless: 1,003 Facts That Will Scare the Sh*t Out of You by Cary McNeal is an entertaining collection of facts, some of which will amaze and amuse you and some of which will horrify you. This is a follow-up book to McNeal's bestselling 1,001 Facts that Will Scare the S#*t Out of You: The Ultimate Bathroom Reader. Chapter topics include scary facts about celebrities, ordinary people, frightening places on earth, dangerous animals, our bodies, and sex. The source for each fact is documented in a list at the end of the book.

Anyone who enjoys reading trivia books, especially amusing trivia books, will love this book. McNeal's humorous comments are interspersed throughout providing comic relief from the list of sometimes bizarre and frightening truths we all live with. McNeal's witticisms catch the reader off guard and are a source of delight. Elvis, serial killers, cats, bacon, clowns, and honey badgers are just a few of the fun subjects covered by the facts in this book. There's definitely something for everyone. This book is great to take along with you to read a few pages at a time while riding the bus or while waiting in the doctor's office. It would make a great gift for friends and family members too. Fans of McNeal's previous books and those who follow his popular humor blog "List of the Day" won't be disappointed.

I chose 5 stars b/c as far as bathroom reading goes, this is it. The real deal! This book, imho is almost like a laxative. If you don't have to go to the bathroom before you start reading it, chances are you'll be going when you're done reading the book! LOL.

I don't like to read long, drawn out stories and this is not that book. There is a lot of interesting and odd trivia. Everything from what color of poop means what, and how some animals eat their own. Okay, it's gross! However remember, you're not reading this at the dinner table or at a meeting. You're reading this while sitting on the Porcelain prince, hopefully with privacy.

I really don't understand why people will buy this book and then write a scathing review, and pick it apart like a puzzle, as if they could do better! Anyway, I bought my husband the first edition or whichever book was published a few years ago. I saw this book and felt compelled to buy it, and am so glad I did!!

As a fan of the first book, I knew what I was getting myself into with this. Disgusting, disturbing, unnerving, and unapologetic - you'll learn some things you'll wish you never knew. I love this book! I recommend to anyone that needs a high quality "toilet reader" for their bathroom.

Book has a good sense of humor in its way to convey mindless entertainment and facts. Perfect bathroom reader. I have had company come over and let's just say...hang in the bathroom a bit too long lol But believe me I call them on it every time.

An awesome book of of non useless information. I read and my responds was dang. my husband read it and every time he reads something that was OMG, he will read it to me. Sigh I did said i read it right. but it was a great way to chit chat. But once its read, it pretty much toss to the side collecting dust. I enjoy the book but i need to pass it forward to someone else's hand. I think this is more of a gift book. Birthday or even a funny christmas present.

I purchased this book for a Christmas present for my father. It's hilarious, and he loved it. We spent a good half an hour reading random facts out loud. I almost bought this book before checking Amazon, and would have paid more money. Glad I bought it here.

Not a bad read, but these types of books sort of get old and tiresome for me. Although, if you read it for a bit, then put it down for a couple of weeks, it remains enjoyable. Someone else may enjoy reading these types of book repeatedly, but for me, it is a space filler when between books.
