    DescriptionOne for the grown-ups, this quirky new Ripley's book is filled with bizarre and hilarious "Believe It or Not" stories, trivia and lists - perfect for any fan of the unusual, and the ideal Father's Day gift. Some of the utterly stupefying stories within include: the craziest true CIA plots, including the cat secret agent and the pigeon guided missile; a gambler who broke Monte Carlo; the secret US nuclear launch codes that were reportedly set at '00000000' for 16 years during the Cold War; a man who successfully removed his own appendix while on an Antarctic expedition.

    Author Information
    ROBERT LEROY RIPLEY was an American cartoonist, who created and developed the world-famous Ripley's Believe It or Not! cartoon strip in the years after the First World War. He travelled the globe in search of unusual objects and stories, and built up an extraordinary collection of everything from shrunken heads to dinosaur eggs and iron maidens. These are now exhibited in Ripley museums around the world, including one in London's Piccadilly Circus. The Ripley's Believe It or Not! annual has become an international best-seller.
