There are urban myths about all kinds of different things, but how many of these myths are actually true? This book takes a look at many different myths, exploring their origins and assigning a "fact" or "phony" label to each after careful evaluation. Fun fact boxes and amusing cartoons and illustrations help explore common beliefs—can people get sucked out of an airplane bathroom's toilet? Do human fingernails keep growing after a person dies? The only way to find the truth is to keep turning the page!
