TIME-LIFE Mysteries of the Unknown: Inside the World of the Strange and Unexplained

We rated this book:


There are many strange and seemingly inexplicable things in our world, things that make one question oneself and one’s beliefs, things that make people lose sleep and spend time wondering and worrying. This book covers a great many of these questions—from Curses to Secret Societies, from Aliens to Zombies, from Hauntings to Near Death Experiences and more. Each section has plenty of interesting illustrations and photographs as well as quick-access information in the form of charts and lists. These are not all things from the long past, but many things and people covered are contemporary. The writing of the individual stories is lively and fascinating. Enough facts are included to whet reader’s appetites and will send many to the library and internet for ferret out more information. Some of the stories are quite famous, such as the Curse of the Bambino, but many are less well known, such as the Chicago Cubs Curse of the Goat. This is a really fun read. It’s the kind of book to keep handy for when you have a few spare minutes. You can jump in anywhere and find something intriguing.
