Are you tired of the media's ill-educated hysterical fear-mongering? Would you prefer accurately researched terrifyingly funny fear-mongering? This book is a must-have for anyone who even pretends to like laughing or "staying alive." It'll also make make you look incredibly smart and witty when these subjects come up in conversation, which they will, and people will welcome the moment of humor while running from the unkillable plant monsters.

It combines real research with humor, telling stories of the Russian who single-handedly saved the world, the real revenge of the robots, the immortal Highlander of infectious bacteria, and all manner of other incredible things in fast, funny, bathroom-break-sized chunks. A perfect gift for anyone who likes to sound smart, cares about the environment, or cheers while watching Armageddon - basically the entire intellectual spectrum. Of course, you'll have to "test" it by reading it yourself first.

Now you might be laughing hysterically, as the topics covered are scary. The author is quite colourful and turns what would otherwise be a frightening read into something that can give you a laugh after a bad day in the office or an afternoon stuck in traffic.

Kinda scary, but very entertaining! Definitely a book you can put down easily after a few stories of how we were almost killed by an idiots experiments!

Much like the title suggests, it's true. Could be a little easier to follow.
