This is history served up high-octane, with all of the fun and none of the boredom. It's not about memorizing lists of dates or names, or remembering which general won what battle. Instead, BIZARRE HISTORY merrily digs up the scandals, the strangeness, and the scintillating details that illuminate personalities, events, and real life.

Many of these should be known by history lovers though there are a few that are not well know. There were some mistakes and some of the information I question the accuracy of it. If you want to know about each of these you will have to go else where since the information is only a few sentences or a paragraph or two long.

Interesting read. It had its shining moments but most of the stories definitely require you to go and dig for some more information on your own. Because of this it took much longer to read through than I originally planned.

A decent and rather entertaining read, I knew many of these just from reading as much history as I do but there were still some new ones on me so that was enjoyable. I did find it frustrating when I knew the bigger picture making the snippets in the book feel inaccurate due to being taken out of context. For more casual history readers, or someone who is newer to history there are plenty of stories to hopefully catch your attention and inspire you to learn more.

A fun silly read, especially if you don't want to take history so seriously.

A short and somewhat entertaining book, dealing with fallacious & weird history.

Interesting history tidbits. Quite a few I didn't know about or had forgotten.
