If you like books dealing with the weird, wacky and completely strange, then this is the book for you, it has everything from the bizzare world of Ripley's that you could ever want.

Pretty much most of what is in here is amazing and I have to trust the authenticity of the articles and images, however there was one item I had trouble believing, there was a picture of a Crocodile Hand Rattle, which you might say was pretty standard fare for Ripley's, however the fact that it was being called a 'Maori crocodile hand rattle from New Zealand' made me a wee bit suspicious as I have yet to see a crocodile in the wild here in New Zealand.

But aside from that possibly incorrect information it's still a great book to leave lying on the coffee table to encourage some really stimulating (and quite possibly bizzare) discussions.

Product reviews for listing 1021: I Didn't do it for You: How the world betrayed a small African nation -  Written by Michela Wrong

Product image for I DidnScarred by decades of conflict and occupation, the craggy African nation of Eritrea has weathered the world's longest-running guerilla war.

The dogged determination that secured victory against Ethiopia, its giant neighbour, is woven into the national psyche, the product of a series of cynical foreign interventions.

Fascist Italy wanted Eritrea as the springboard for a new, racially pure Roman empire, Britain sold off its industry for scrap, the United States needed a base for its state-of-the-art spy station, and the Soviet Union used it as a pawn in a proxy war.
