Strange History

29987766

I received a free Kindle coy of this book courtesy of Net Galley and Printer’s Row, the publisher. This was in exchange for a review posted on Net Galley, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and my blog. In addition, I posted it to my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus pages.

I requested this book because the description sounded intriguing – “Mysterious Artifacts, Macabre Legends, Boneheaded Blunders and Mind-Blowing Facts.”

It is a quick, engaging and entertaining read. It is full of all types of unusual facts and references to things that never came up in history classes in school and in a number of cases is far more interesting than the typical history covered. The subject matter is far reaching and world wide. It is somewhat organized in sections around themes.

I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in reading about actual unusual events or looking for something that will not necessarily clutter your mind (but could come in handy in case you ever qualify for Jeopardy).
