I Don't Believe it!
Santrauka: Richard Wilson's Book of Absurdities is a short but clever book that is useful as a quick coffee table reader (or toilet fodder) to grab when you have only five minutes and want to be entertained. It is a collection of very short facts, statistics and stories that will make you want to say 'I don't believe it'. Funnily enough, as I recounted a fact from the book a friend quickly retorted 'Kangaroo's an inch long at birth? I don't believe it.' Some of the facts and figures are truly unbelievable and I took them with a pinch of salt. Richard swears that they are true facts but without using the tired old phrase I simply can't quite bring myself to accept the believability of some of them. Nevertheless, the book is a great little read that holds its own even 9 years after its initial publication.
