    I guess if you pick this book up its pretty obvious what you're going to get. I really enjoyed the brief explanations of various mysteries, largely because I hadn't heard of all of them yet. Disappointing however was the variation in explanations. Some of the tales were solved or explained by robust research and evidence. Others Jack simply threw some possible reasons out there and others he simply didn't bother and basically just talked about the mystery. Nonetheless a good balance of laughs to s I guess if you pick this book up its pretty obvious what you're going to get.

    As interesting and as much fun as the Red Herring...Shaggy Dog books. Albert Jack has a real knack for getting dry, heavy factual information into a lovely, readable concise format. I learned more about the Bermuda Triangle and Marilyn Monroe than I ever knew before and the brief 10-minute chapters make them easy to digest and pick up/put down as you wish.

    I got this book while on holiday with my family in Indonesia at an inn that we were staying in. I enjoyed the book very much that I swapped it out of the inn unnoticed. Hopefully, no one misses it. Or turn it into another mystery :P The book title is pretty self-explanatory. Albert Jack has compiled some of the world's most intriguing mysteries, ranging from the cryptozoological (Loch Ness, Bigfoot, Spring-Heeled Jack), to UFO sightings (Aurora crash, USOs, Crop Circles), to famous individuals li I got this book while on holiday with my family in Indonesia at an inn that we were staying in. I enjoyed the book very much that I swapped it out of the inn unnoticed. Hopefully, no one misses it. Or turn it into another mystery :P The book title is pretty self-explanatory. Albert Jack has compiled some of the world's most intriguing mysteries, ranging from the cryptozoological (Loch Ness, Bigfoot, Spring-Heeled Jack), to UFO sightings (Aurora crash, USOs, Crop Circles), to famous individuals like Roberto Calvi, Agatha Christie, and D.B. Cooper. Each mystery segment has been written concisely to provide readers with all the details with a 10-15 minute reading time per segment. For those who are about to embark into the world of unsolved mysteries and conspiracy theories, this is a good book to provide a headstart. Cleverly researched, Albert has also injected his own brand of humor in his writings that make this book feels less like a textbook and more of a collection of short stories. Some of the segments are shorter than others, particularly in the last few segments. While it is a bit annoying to only read 3 - 5 pages of a particular mystery, rest assured that even the shorter segments have been written with enough detail to interest readers and maybe spur them to do further reading. In addition to details surrounding the mysteries, the author has put out his own theories to explain the mysteries. Whether these theories are true or false, it is up to the reader to solve that on their own (Maybe start a mystery-solving gang of their own. With a Great Dane. Personally, I'd go for a German Shepherd. Or a Golden Retriever. Maybe a Malamute) If you like reading this book, perhaps you may enjoy some of the author's other works: 1) What Caesar Did For My Salad: The Secret Meanings of Our Favorite Dishes 2) Pop Goes the Weasel: The Secret Meanings of Nursery Rhymes Happy reading everyone

    A great repository of entertainingly written explanations to many mysteries and conundrums. My favourite is the Loch Ness Monster – although I choose not to believe it. A fun book and good for dipping in an out of. This is a great sense of satisfaction about the unravelling of mysteries and Mr Jack does it with aplomb. Immerse yourself in this book.

    Some of the topics discussed in this book were familiar to me, whilst others not at all. I liked that the book was written with a sense of humour, though I did feel it getting a bit snarky at times.

    Nice little look at various conspiracy / paranormal etc phenomena and a review of whether they really are as mysterious as are often claimed
