    Oddly entertaining...

    I found this book on the discount table (I think). I flipped through it and thought it would be an interesting coffee table book - something for people to pick up when they have a few minutes to spare. It's interesting alright - and a little on the "odd" side, too. Some of the "events" are dark and sad but if they're true, then it's history to be known, right? Everything in the book was news to me. For the price, it was a decent pick.

    Quick, fascinating run through the weird

    This small, inexpensive book provides a breezy run through the weird and wacky events in human history. The stories are short (3 pages), making it the perfect bathroom companion.

    Perfect coffee table book

    Great compilation of short stories of history that normally wouldn't come to attention. Not a serious reader, but entertaining. Great for the coffee table.

    Trivial pursuit-like

    Interesting random events. Light easy reading. A good "stocking stuffer".
