This book is a summary of some of the most notable winners of the "Ig Nobel Prizes" and some of them are outright unbelievable! Others are easy to see. Some were valid publications that just sounded weird. (The one where the doctors published a paper of how a man seriously hurt himself while trying a home remedy for a snake bite served a pupose to publicly debunk the myth, but the event itself was actually jaw-dropping!) This is not really a book that most people will just sit down to read. They'll likely read an entry or two at a time, since each is its own individual story. A fun little book!
