100 Things Youre Not Supposed to Know

100 Things Youre Not Supposed to Know
$14.95

This book sheds light on those things that people in power--government, religious leaders, corporations, the rich and well connected--would just as soon wish you didn't know. To them secrets are power. And they'll do whatever it takes to keep them that way -- suppressing the truth and covering up facts that might make the rest of us angry enough to challenge the powerful or at least to have a good laugh at their expense.

Using careful research and impeccable sources, Kick uncovers the hidden truth. For example, self-appointed censors warn constantly about the dangers of pornography, but the fact is that pornography has existed since the first cave people carved dirty pictures on the walls. It's also true that two atomic bombs were dropped on North Carolina--although we managed to avoid nuking Greenland, Texas, Canada, Britain and Spain; George Washington embezzled government funds; 1 of 10 people is not fathered by the man they believe is dad; Barbie is based on a German sex doll; The American colonists practiced cannibalism, and much more.

This is a combined edition of 50 Things You're Not Supposed to Know, Volumes 1 and 2 first published in 2003 and 2004.
