A collection of vignettes on various eccentrics and mad people. There was little new on all these cranks and crackpots but many of them make good company so I was happy to revisit their eccentricities. ( )

I love these books, popular history with nearly every entry worthy of their own movie. ( )

I recommend this book when you don't want to get yourself deep into a novel. It's a great book for when you are out and about but feel the need to bring a book along. The stories are short enough that you can read one in a very short time.

I found the stories fascinating, very interesting. ( )
