Overview

Sure, everyone's had the occasional odd experience -- the car keys vanishing from your kitchen table, deja vu, the case of the disappearing beer. Most of them can be explained away. (The dog took your keys; you really have been here before; your roommate drank the beer.) But what about the true enigmas, the puzzles of science and the universe that can't be so easily dismissed? In this fascinating compendium, Stephen Spignesi presents one hundred of the strangest, most mystifying riddles on earth including: angels and zombies, near-death experiences, crop circles, poltergeists, auras and halos, Nostradamus's predictions, possession and exorcism, The Philadelphia Experiment, reincarnation and past-life regression, Stonehenge, time travel, legendary beasts and mythological creatures, and more! Filled with dramatic photos and drawings, as well as "pro" and "con" evidence from believers and skeptics alike, THE WEIRD 100 explores the unbelievable while proving that life is a lot more interesting -- and infinitely weirder -- than we ever imagined.
