Gregory employs masterful wit to expose historical myths, faux quotes, strange events, and tales of human stupidity throughout history.
I really enjoyed this and learned a lot. I was surprised considerably with the information presented by Gregory. This was most definitely not dry or dull. This is history at its best. My personal favorite quote used in the books is: “If excessive smoking actually plays a role in the production of lung cancer, it seems to be a minor one.” – The National Cancer Institute, 1954
