From the best-selling author of Red Herrings & White Elephants, Pop Goes the Weasel, What Caesar did for my Salad & They Laughed at Galileo.
Albert Jack’s Mysterious World is a collection of the world’s most famous and puzzling mysteries.
What really happened to the Mary Celeste?
Who killed Marilyn Monroe?
Where is Bigfoot?
Could Aliens really exist?
From crop circles to the Scottish lighthouse keepers who vanished one stormy night and from religious visions to the spine tingling tale of a restless family tomb, bestselling author Albert Jack has now turned his detective skills to the mysteries that have baffled so many over the years. And he has discovered all kinds of fascinating and surprising evidence.
Using ‘Occam’s Razor’ Jack neatly peels away the myth, the legend, the improbable and unlikely and exams only the plausible.
‘Sometimes the smarter stocking-filler may even help you to think better as well as to trounce the rival quiz crew. From the Bermuda Triangle to the Loch Ness Monster Albert Jack offers a crash course in sceptical thinking. Brilliant’ – The Independent, Books of the Year.
