    Tom Jackson

    Paperback (Shelter Harbor Press, April 1, 2016)
    Think you know it all? Of course you do! But there are a multitude of so-called "facts" that are nothing more than myths. For instance: Carrots improve your vision. Even though you've never seen a rabbit with glasses, this little tidbit is actually a trick played by the Royal Air Force in World War II. This book debunks many things we think are true but actually have no basis in fact. It also includes a bunch of weird but true stuff along the way such as: ¢¢ Lightning never strikes twice in the same place. ¢¢ Lemmings commit mass suicide. ¢¢ Using a cell phone at a gas station could cause a fire. ¢¢ Sugar makes kids hyperactive. And, as a special bonus, included are "WRONG" stickers that can be used to clarify things for your all-knowing friends and loved ones. Just because everyone thinks so doesn't mean it is true!
