This book is almost like a travel guide. It doesn't take long to read. Interesting, but would be more so, if I took it to Europe on a vacation or was planning a vacation to Europe anytime soon. However, with the state of the US Dollar, it may be a little while until I get back there again. Fascinating stuff though!

I guess the cover art of the craaaazy, bendy Eiffel Tower should have tipped me off that this book would be a little disappointing. It was kind of helpful in finding a few oddball tourist destinations, but most of the places highlighted in this book are pretty well-publicized elsewhere. Also, many of the attractions are just NOT THAT WEIRD (or wacky or zany, for the record).

Did you know that in Switzerland there is a Rock and Roll Hotel with a room dedicated to Bryan Adams? This book is very interesting--it would have gotten more stars had it mentioned the Phallological Museum in Iceland.

Recommends it for: those intersted in offbeat Travel, Weird sites to see in Europe
A great resource for discovering all the sites to see that are truly weird in Europe. A fun read and very informative. Definitely a guide to see whats off the beaten track.
