The marvelously compelling biography of Robert 'Believe It or Not' Ripley, the enigmatic cartoonist turned globetrotting millionaire who won international fame by celebrating the world's strangest oddities, and whose outrageous showmanship taught us to believe in the unbelievable. As portrayed by acclaimed biographer Neal Thompson, Ripley's life is the stuff of a classic American fairy tale. Cursed by shyness, Ripley turned his sense of being an outsider into an appreciation for strangeness.

I started this book and decided that I didn't like Ripley, and put it down.
