"Because I Said So!" was a good time. I don't have kids, but I was certainly told many of these myths when I was younger!
After a read through, it is obvious the author put a lot of time and effort into compiling a wide variety of studies and used quality sources. He has done a great job in arriving at clear cut answers whenever possible, and explaining where things are still murky or unknown. I laughed- and groaned happily- through the jokes. The selection of these generational tales and the author's entertaining voice really make this a unique book in the 'mythbusting' genre.
Highly recommended for yourself- and as a reasonably priced gift for that person in your life who is otherwise hard to shop for. I think just about anyone who sits down to read this book will find the time well spent.
