First and Formost I love Ripley's and I get the new book that comes out every year. Just so people know this is larger then regular annual books they come out every year with like double the size if you place to annual books left to right. With that said its a great book if you love Ripley's books or stuff of that nature this is probably the biggest one to my knowledge, big pages and lots of facts.

All real. Yep.
All believable? Hell no.
That's the point! Gotta love it!
This has so many cartoons and pics and stories, it's really well stocked with fun info. I've had it for years and keep stumbling across new fun stuff!

This book really brought me back to my childhood. Back to the days that my brother and I used to fight over a Ripley's book that we had when we were young. But then again, my brother and I fought over a lot of stuff when we were kids. I enjoy the book much more than any of the T.V. shows they've aired.

needed more pictures of circus freaks in it. that would have helped.
plus my copy smelled a wee bit funny but that's most likely not true for all of them, so forget i mentioned that.
great pictures...hilarious pictures...i just thought it could have used a few more large photos of bearded women, tatooed men, and the like.
This would be a great book for a coffee table - except that it is HUGE! It's hard to figure out wherer to keep it. The book itself is good.
