The result is a rehash of generally familiar tales that he invariably fails to exploit fully, such as missing out the ending of the story about the man who blows himself up on the toilet then is dropped from the stretcher by laughing paramedics.

'Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. Was Sir Winston Churchill really a Druid? Did Charlie Chaplin lose a lookalike competition? Did The Who's drummer Keith Moon drive his Rolls Royce into a swimming pool? The man with the answers is Albert Jack...' - "Daily Express". From Walt Disney's frozen head to the kidnap of JFK's brain, Albert Jack gathers together all the strangest, sickest, funniest and most unforgettable urban legends and recounts them with his usual deadpan humour. But this is more than just a collection of urban legends, it is also a detective story. Exploring the real events behind conspiracy theories, the exaggerations of history and the assumptions of old wives' tales, Albert Jack shows us that the truth can definitely be stranger than fiction.
