The podcast, Aaron Mahnke's Cabinet of Curiosities, has delighted millions of listeners for years with tales of the wonderful, astounding, and downright bizarre people, places, and things throughout history. Now, in Cabinet of Curiosities the book, learn the fascinating story of the invention of the croissant in a country that was not France, and relive the adventures of a dog that stowed away and went to war, only to help capture a German spy. Along the way, readers will pass through the American state of Franklin, watch Abraham Lincoln's son be rescued by his assassin's brother, and learn how too many crash landings inspired one pilot to leave the airline industry and trek for the stars.

For the first time ever, Aaron has gathered scores of his favorites in print, and curated them into a beautiful, topical collection for devoted followers and new fans alike.


Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Cabinet of Curiosities hand-picks the most curious and interesting moments of history and spins them into delicious, snack-sized treats with the fun, friendly feeling of campfire tales. The ideal holiday gift for the history buff in your life!" —Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times bestselling author.

"Aaron Mahnke is an exemplary storyteller." - Geek Girl Authority, on the Cabinet of Curiosities podcast

“Truth can often be much scarier than fiction—something [Aaron] Mahnke proves as he dives deep into the world of folklore and the darker side of history in a quest to root out the fragment of truth at the bottom of our fears.”—Entertainment Weekly, on the Lore podcast

“Unlike so much horror that needs over-the-top viscera to scare you, this podcast leans on history—folklore, myth, the stuff people once thought was true—to tell its tales.” —The Atlantic, on the Lore podcast
