Superstitions galore in an A-Z guide.

The research I imagine for this book makes my head spin. Not in an Exorcist kind of way, but as in, holy shit. The sheer volume will keep you entertained for a long, long time and the sheer stupidity of the majority of superstitions will have you questioning the genetics of the human race. How the fuck did we survive for so long with so many of these so-called cures out there?! It boggles the mind. All-in-all it’s an interesting read, but the writing leaves a lot to be desired.
