My friend got this book from the library the other day and I was reading it today... And it has some pretty gross, disturbing, unusual, interesting, and funny stuff in there. I would recommend buying this, if you like weird stories. And, I must say, it will have you thinking, "Believe It Or Not?"

An eye opening collection of shocking tales for adults, uncensored and raw. Ripley's has take all those tales that were regarded either to dark, extreme, distasteful, profane or even complex for other Ripley's publications. Many of the tales in this book were previously shortened or censored when first published. Ripley's has gone back through their files and searched for the original sources and stories an then included them in this book just for guys. Ripley's has also included trivia in this print which guys are crazy about to make it even more unique. Ripley's Unbelievable Stories for Guys opens with an interesting fact of the first hybrid vehicle which was actually invented in the 1900's. There are no photos in this printing but that does not in any way take away from all the fun this book is. You get a little bit of everything in this book that guys love including science, history, crime, laws, digital, technical, politics, food plus much more. I loved reading this book and learning about all these cool and bizarre stories. This title is not for children but I would highly recommend it to the older teens who will find it highly entertaining. The compact size of this book makes it a great gift. It is nice and portable so guys can take it with them anywhere and with it's masculine black hardcover it makes a great gift for that dad in your life.

This book is very interesting but on my nook it repeats pages a lot of times so I end up skipping a lot of pages.
