The Big Book of Urban Legends: 200 True Stories Too Good to Be True ... book from the ultimate authority on those almost believable tales that always happen to a friend of a friend. Alligators in the sewers? A pet in the microwave? A tragic misunderstanding of the function of cruise control? No, it didn't really happen to your friend's sister's neighbor: it's an urban legend. And no matter how savvy you think you are, you are sure to find in this collection of over 200 tales at least one story you would have sworn was true.
