From the Publisher:  One for the grown-ups, this quirky new Ripley’s book is filled with bizarre and hilarious “Believe It or Not!” stories, trivia and lists— perfect for any fan of the unusual, and the ideal Father’s Day gift.

My Review:  First off, let me say that I remember watching the Ripley’s Believe It or Not show with my parents when I was growing up.  I LOVED the show and have read through several of the books in the last few years.  So, yes, this book is in the hands of someone who is already a big fan!

This is a nice sized book, comfy to hold and with 250  pages it is cram packed with facts, statistics, and weird information that will just grab your attention and make you say WOW!  Lots of categories that guys will love including transportation, sports, food, body, natural world and many others.  Honestly, though, as someone who is clearly NOT a guy…I loved all of these categories too.  Okay, the sports one wasn’t my favorite but everything else really grabbed my attention.

Ripley’s Unbelievable Stories For Guys is laid out in such a way that you can read just one fact or 10, depending on how much time you have.  There are just too many weird facts and stories in this book to go into detail but every single one seemed to make me go ewwww, or WOW, or want to share it with everyone else in the room!  Like the one about Niagra Falls running dry!  Or the man who took out his own appendix…of course, the boys in the house really liked the story about the island that smells like farts.  It’s a guy thing I guess!

Not only is this a great idea for Father’s Day but if you have a long car journey planned this summer, consider getting Ripley’s Unbelievable Stories For Guys to keep you entertained during the ride!
