That's Bollocks! - Albert Jack gathers together all the strangest, sickest, funniest and most unforgettable urban legends and recounts them with his usual deadpan humour. More than just a collection of urban legends, this is also a detective story. Exploring the real events behind conspiracy theories, the exaggerations of history and the assumptions of old wives' tales and self-help books amongst many, many other things, Albert Jack shows us that the truth can definitely be stranger than fiction.
