Thomas Kirby, August 10, 2012 (view all comments by Thomas Kirby)
This is a funny book of weird news items, with some items not being suitable for the squeamish. I didn't notice any that I knew to be urban legends, so I guess the "true" part of the title is reasonably accurate. All the stories were less than a page long, with several stories per page, but this fits my preferred style of reading during my commute on public transit.
