Description
Mind-blowing myth busting in this light-hearted collection exploring 200 of the world’s most popular fallacies. Hilarious and fascinating, fact-filled descriptions in themed chapters explore popular myths from, mainly, US and UK history plus science, nature and popular culture. Discover that the truth really is stranger than fiction: why Napoleon wasn’t short; no witches were burned at Salem; King Canute did not expect to control the tide; sugar does not make children hyper; lightning can strike twice; and lemmings do not leap off cliffs. Pithy entries and some saucy content will astound and entertain adult readers equally. From American publisher Whalen Book Works: includes American English spelling and phraseology. The publisher undertakes to plant a tree in a United States national park for every 10 of their worldwide book sales.
