It's time for a giveaway!!!

I don't do this often, but I was given the opportunity to host a giveaway for A Curious Man by  Neal Thompson. Here's a little info on the book....

"Howard Hughes crossed with P.T. Barnum, Robert “Believe It or Not” Ripley was a lonely, buck-toothed cartoonist turned eccentric millionaire and renowned world-traveler who in the 1930’s and 1940’s earned international fame by journeying to the farthest corners of the earth in search of the world’s most exotic curiosities. But for all his success in uncovering oddities, no piece of Ripley’s collection was as remarkable as the man himself. From his youth as an awkward young artist with an innate empathy for “freaks,” to his golden years spent on a private island stocked with rare artifacts and strange pets, Ripley lived life on the kind of grand scale normally confined to fiction. Now with A Curious Man: The Strange and Brilliant Life of Robert “Believe It or Not!” Ripley (Crown Archetype; May 7, 2013) acclaimed biographer Neal Thompson has delivered a marvelously compelling account of this great American story, told for the first time ever—a thrilling tale of the underdog who taught us to believe in the unbelievable."

  1. A fascinating guy who really took advantage of the increasing ease of air travel to seek out his odd collection. Without him, some of the things he found might still be unknown today. Thanks for the giveaway, this looks like a really good biography. carlscott(at)prodigy(dot)net(dot)mx
