Comments

This volume offers an astonishing variety of matter, treatment and tone. For Example "Will the Ice Age Return? (A frightening and real possibility) and Heaven's Artillery ( a story about meteorites are enough to give on chills in a sauna, while Bunga-Bunga (an account of an elaborate hoax) and Everything Has Its Price (a tale of a remarkably pervasiveness gentleman who, among other felonious exploits, sold the Eiffel Tower and rented out the White House) would probably bring a smile to a wooden Indian.

It contains Hard Science, wondrous discoveries, Informed predictions, History's great explorers, charlatans and fakes, UFOS and world clocks are all included in this impressive volume
