Description

It's common knowledge that Eve gave Adam an apple. Everyone knows that George Washington was the First president of the United States. And when your mother told you not to go swimming right after you ate, you took it as a matter of life and death. But you've been myth-informed -- by legend, by history... even by your mother! The truth is ...
-- Milk chocolate may actually help prevent tooth decay!
-- If you "eat like a bird," you may eat up to one-half your body weight every single day!
-- The largest city in America is not New York or Los Angeles -- it's Jacksonville, Florida!

Now you can face the facts -- on everything from aphrodisiacs to zip codes -- in this alphabetically arranged collection of more than 590 fabulous fallacies and memorable misconceptions. You won't know what you're missing until mastered Myth Information.
