A Peoples History of the Peculiar

 

This is a “peculiar” little book.  Ok, ok, it’s a cute, funny little book with peculiar things in it.  Need a giggle?  This little book of fun facts can supply you with a smile.

 

A People’s History of the Peculiar
A Freak Show of Facts, Random Obsessions & Astounding Truths 

By:
Nicholas Belardes

A Treasure Trove of Freaky Facts and Strange Stories

Did you know founding father Thomas Jefferson’s grandson was an ax murderer? Or that a good laugh can cure a bad stomachache? Nicholas Belardes has been called a “bizarre fact hunter” and “master of the last thing you need to know.” An academic in anomaly, Belardes knows more secret lore than all the National Treasure movies combined, and digs up mind-boggling scientific oddities that would drive Darwin mad. Pore over the puzzle of Alice in Wonderland syndrome, explore the geographic mysteries of Hell Town and the hungry denizens of the Cannibal Islands, and uncover the prophecies of the mysterious Mothman. A People’s History of the Peculiar will satisfy your curiosity better than any Internet binge, and guarantees at least a few workable pickup lines at a cocktail party. Teeming with astounding trivia, A People’s History of the Peculiar is a must-have for anyone hungry for more knowledge.
