    I agree but.....

    An interesting read, but I wish that I had known that my $10.49 would only buy me 103 pages.
    So if you want a quick and fun read and have $10 to piss away, then have fun.

    A fun, quick read

    This compelling factbook is full of myths and debunks. Frater sometimes exaggerates how much of a myth something is; for example, he might give one single example of something opposing the myth and call it completely debunked. Occasionally he'll give arguments that barely pertain to the "myth" at all. Sources are rarely cited, lowering the book's credibility. Nevertheless, this is a short and enjoyable read that isn't hindered too much by its occasional blips.
