A decade ago, a book like this could not have been possible.

Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure is a cautionary and autobiographical tale about life and obsession, set in modern times. Warning against mature inaction rather than the follies of youth, Googlewhack is remarkably enjoyable and easy to read.

On the cusp of his thirty-second birthday, the British comedian faces two challenges: writing a novel about a fictional new colour and growing into his newfound age.

  Urban Legends doesn't myth the markPDF files may take a moment to load

You've heard the stories. Friends discovering a rodent, body parts and other less wholesome things in their food. How about the tales of giant alligators lying in wait down in the sewers of New York? The scuba diver found in a tree?

Urban Legends: Strange Stories Behind Modern Myths is as intriguing as its title. In his journey for the truth, writer A.S. Mott often debunks these modern fables which are often taken as fact. Intriguingly, he doesn't debunk all of them.
