Overview:

Amazing...But False!: Hundreds of "Facts" You Thought Were True, But Aren't : Edison invented the lightbulb - and motion pictures. Camels store water in their humps. Captain Kidd was a notorious pirate. What do these so-called "facts" have in common? They're all false! Every one is a myth that, through time, has achieved the status of reality. Finally, someone is here to set the record straight, once and for all. In this fully illustrated color collection of popular misconceptions, freelance writer and journalist David Diefendorf uncovers hundreds of widely accepted truths in various categories: famous firsts, health and the body, history, misquotations and misusages, people, religion, science and technology, and more. It's fun and informative, and a great gift for any brainiac, trivia buff, or know-it-all.
