A major disappointment
on September 1, 2005
I am a big fan of collections of esoterica and the authors have been diligently flogging this book, so I thought it had the makings of a fun read. Sad to say, the few parts that are funny are not original. Every "question" covered has been discussed in the media for years as have been the answers. Alas, even some of the answers are wrong.
The parts that are original are not funny. The authors shamelessly pad the book with pages and pages of dreary dumb/dumber dialog. (Their editor needs to develop a backbone.) Skip that (not difficult as it becomes worse as you go along) and you're left with a lot of nothing.
At least I wasted less time than money because the whole book took much less than an hour to finish.
