The colossal classic becomes even more colossal with a full new chapter of recent urban legends.

Alligators in the sewers? A pet in the microwave? 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 at least one story you always believed to be true in this colossal collection. Professor Jan Harold Brunvand is the leading authority on urban legends, and Too Good to Be True―now updated and expanded―is his most complete anthology. Whether you want to become an expert debunker or just have plenty of laughs, this book will surprise and entertain you. 74 illustrations
