    Decent, Not To Unexpected.

    A definite quick read, though nothing too unexpected. The author takes the time to explain some well known myths and facts. This story requires internet connection though, as there are lots of links in it.

    It had many interesting bits, some of which, dispite having worked at Disney before joining the Navy, I was totally unaware. If you like collections of myths and/or urban legends this will be a nice read

    Well written with great links

    A short and sweet book. While it was no surprise which myths were true or false, the author goes behind the myth to find out why it started. she also links her most interesting sources that offer supplementary material to the book.
