My Take on the Book
I found this book to be quite interesting. There were so many unusual entries. Some were bizarre as Ripley's is able to locate the unusual, but some were just informative facts too. The color photographs and descriptive passages on each page definitely provided a high interest level for any reader. The authors included a wide range of topics.
One entry I enjoyed was about a nine year old girl who invented suckers that were healthy for your teeth. The invention came about because her father kept telling her that candy was not good for her teeth, so she made an alternative.
The reader will become aware of ostrich racing, why laughing is good for you, how some individuals with a lost limb(s) become great fishermen and golfers, facts about bugs and natural disasters, and much much more.
