  • Robert Ripley's life is just as weird and riveting as a two-headed snake or an 8,000 rubber band ball. And Neal Thompson has told the story brilliantly in this book. What's truly unbelievable is that it's taken us so long to get a full-fledged biography of this great American character, a man who tapped into our fascination with bizarre non-fiction and who can rightly claim to be the godfather of Reality TV. It was worth the wait.

  • A biography of a man who was as unusual as the items he collected…An outstanding work…I couldn't pull myself away.
