An interesting, quick read & I even learned a couple of new things about some myths. If you are the type of person who stores this kind of info in your brain, then this is your type of book. :-)

Some interesting stuff in this book. Each idea discussed has a quote or question and then briefly looks at it pro and con. Sampling of tales: carrots help you see in the dark; vegetarians are more peaceful; if you shave your eyebrows off they won't grow back; vinegar cures athlete's foot.
