If you've ever visited a Ripley's Believe it or Not! Museum or read one of the Ripley's books, you know you're in for a real treat when you pick up this book. This new book brings out the creepiest and most interesting Ripley's Believe it or Not! stories from around the globe in its 256 pages you won't want to miss out on!
One of my favorite images from the book is the alligator pictured below: It's actually a motorcycle...while I do not agree with the killing of any animal, this motorcycle helped raise funds for a wildlife rehabilitation center.
Strikingly True includes a vast amount of "incredible and bizarre facts, stories, interviews, lists, and features are all presented in a bright new design. Look out for a special section on weird Olympic facts, and some stunningfeatures on tattooed ladies, ancient mummies, and walls of death, among many others. Fascinating interviews with some of the planet’s most extraordinary people explore their motivations, while the popular “Ripley Research” boxes explain the science behind some of the most unbelievable tales in the book."
Something else that I found to be interesting was that you can submit an item to be included in a future Ripley's Believe It or Not! Book by visiting this site. I love this idea!
