Complete Idiot's Guide to Urban Legends (Complete Idiot's Guides)by Brandon Toropov
Synopses & Reviews
Some stories are so good, we think they ought to be true, even if they aren't. Urban legends, or myths, passed on at office water coolers, over the Internet, in bars and coffeehouses, are stories that sound almost if not completely plausible. "The Complete Idiot's Guide(r) to Urban Legends" gathers together the most pervasive, unusual, fascinating, and grotesque of these cautionary, often violent folktales that are the 21st-century equivalent of myths, fairy tales, and fables. The book explains their historic and psychological underpinnings and showing how, thanks to the Internet, they can travel at the speed of light and mutate just as quickly.
