uncle john's weird weird world book coverReviewed by Melanie Kline

Amazing, interesting, page turning, edge of your seat entertainment at it’s finest–there are not enough adjectives to describe the wonderful piece of literature that I had the opportunity to hold in my hands. Uncle John’s Weird, Weird World: Who, What, Where, When, and Wow! had enough stories and blurbs to compete with any Ripley’s or Guinness World Record book, yet was much more fun and compelling.

Who wouldn’t want to learn about Slime Fever Syndrome, Sumo Suit Wrestling, Dwarf Tossing, Random Bathroom Stats, etc.?  Do you know the definition of nocturia? Read this book and you will be sure to. You also cannot hum if you hold your nose closed…did you just try to?

Do you play the lottery? You might want to rethink how badly you want to win when you read about the fates of many of the lottery winners documented in what is my new favorite book of all time. Being rich might not be all it’s cracked up to be or last as long as you would like.

This book is so full of facts, games, quizzes, brain teasers that the fun just never ends! 74% of people read in the bathroom; 47% talk on the phone in the bathroom; 11% eat in there. Umm, I’ve heard of grabbing a roll of toilet paper but never a napkin!

I never stopped laughing through the entire 288 pages of this gem and plan on seeking out all of the previous versions. Not only are they going to grace each and every one of my bathrooms, I am going to be purchasing them as Christmas presents for my family members this year so that they, too, can enjoy the reading experience!

Needless to say, I highly recommend this book to everyone–it is a laugh a minute while being educational at the same time. If you do not find humor in Uncle John’s Weird Weird World: Who, What, Where, When and Wow! then you need to go and get your funny bone checked out! Or you could just concentrate on the section with curses to put on people who won’t toast you.
