At the back of the book,a detailed section gives the sources of all the facts presented in the book and organized by chapter;making it easy for anyone who wants to verify anything in the book or to delve further into the subject.
I could choose a fact from any page as an indication of some of the surprising things in this book.So,here is an example;
"Flip-flops seem harmless,but they might be messing you up with every step.Doctors advise that the spongy material and weak arch support in most pairs of flip-flops can cause feet to roll inward,leading to potential injury and flat feet.One study found that many flip-flop wearers grip their toes as they take a step,which leads to a shorter stride."
This book will not only entertain you but will amaz you and increase your knowledge of many ordinary things around you.
I agree with others that most of the facts are not ridiculous enough to call “weird”. Even the author states in his intro that the info isn’t going to be weird “like two-headed Gila monster shuffling by in a tiny top hat, or a woman dressed as a giant raspberry doing backflips”. But as long as you’re not expecting that level of weirdness, this book should be fine.
expecting some really weird stuff. There are some a bit weird but mostly just unusual. I would recommend this book
because of it's filled chock full of brief, entertaining and non-fiction stories.
