Oh, it's one of those things. Usually, stuff like this makes me frustrated because it tells just the little bit I know about these things, but adds nothing and gives me nowhere to look if I want to know more.

But there was a lot in here that I didn't know. And I get the impression it gave me nowhere to go because there is nowhere to go that doesn't tell you the same amount.

An interesting read. Saw people calling it a "bathroom reader," and I can totally see that. I had it on my living room table

Full of weird and interesting stories in nature. Some will make you say WTF, some will make you feel a lot smarter, either way this is worth a read.
For the most part, this was very interesting. Granted, some of the articles might have been a bit slow/tedious, but for the most part, I enjoyed my time reading this. It's certainly a lot quicker of a read than other books of this length. And I really liked that each topic was discussed in five pages or less; this made for an interesting introduction to the topics, without overwhelming the reader, or boring them.
There is some really weird stuff in this book!!! Great for BBR (Better Bathroom Reading) or when one only has a few minutes to read. The entries are short and grouped together with other like-type entries under heading such as "Explaining the Unexplained" and "Creepy Crawlies". There is a topic to interest anyone.
Very entertaining and well-written. Short entries that are both quick to read and very informative, lots of pictures that enhance the text. Heavy on the science, but in a light, fun way.

I don't think this was suppose to have been read straight as I had. I did learn quite a bit, but admittedly I found myself zoning in and out of topics that I don't typically enjoy.

A nice collection of weird stories and their scientific "explanation", just not my cup of tea in terms of depth and coherence.

Fun and interesting....really good if you only get short installments of time to catch up on your reading.
Some of the stuff is unbelievable. Literally.
Good book for short, informative stories.
