Editorial Reviews

"A spruce tree root system in Sweden has been sprouting new trees for nearly 10,000 years. Scientists think the tree in Dalarna took root around the year 7542 B.C." "The average human body contains enough sulfur to kill all the fleas on a dog, enough carbon to make 900 pencils, enough iron to make a 3 inch nail, enough potassium to fire a toy cannon, enough fat to make seven bars of soap, enough phosphorus to make 1,200 match-heads and enough water to fill a 10 gallon tank." And Ripley's sixth collection of its annual Believe It or Not! series contains enough astonishing information to keep you rapt for days and days and days!
