One of the best "pick me up, have a flick through, and you won't be able to put me down again" books out there. Intriguing, hilarious, amazing, wondrous, exciting and inspiring - it's a fantastic collection of the weird and the wonderful, the wild and the ever-so-slightly whacky. This book is superb. You NEED this book in your life - trust me, I never lie, even if the author himself may tell a porky here or there within the covers....
