The Flip Side of History By Steve Silverman


The Flip Side of History By Steve Silverman from Mango Publishing. Weird Happenings In History. What if your daily new suddenly only featured odd, unbelievable stories? No longer boring weather and traffic reports, but curious, true events that had simply been forgotten in history? Now it can. 

From the host of the popular Useless Information Podcast, author Steve Silverman delivers a collection of fun, head-scratching news from the past. In this book, read about common people doing crazy things that made headlines and not-so-common knowledge. Featuring dozens of real historical events, Silverman provides fascinating stories from the “odd” side of the news. Covering a wide variety of topics, these stories highlight the quirks, complexities, and curiousness of man.

Stranger than Stranger ThingsThe Flip Side of History gives you tales full of strange news, trivia, and facts. Some made newspaper headlines, others were lost in history:

·         A prominent lawyer leaves his entire estate to a town for the establishment of a library that forbids women setting off riots, arrests, and the near hanging of a judge.

·         The amazing story of the only person rescued from slavery by the Underground Railroad four times.

·         That time a man in the 1950s stole hundreds of women’s shoes in Coronado and San Diego, California. The shoes, most of them the left shoe, were found dispersed randomly all over town.

My Opinion: I found this book interesting with facts about history that shows ordinary people doing different things than what the history book teaches you.
