Nothing but the facts from an information archaeologist.
This book sheds light on those things that people in power - government, religious leaders, corporations, the rich and well connected - would just as soon wish you didn't know. To them secrets are power. And they'll do whatever it takes to keep them that way - suppressing the truth and covering up facts that might make the rest of us angry enough to challenge the powerful or at least to have a good laugh at their expense.
Using careful research, Kick uncovers the hidden truth. For example, while self-appointed censors warn constantly about the dangers of pornography, the fact is that pornography has existed since the first cave people carved dirty pictures on the walls. It's also true that two atomic bombs were dropped on North Carolina - although we managed to avoid nuking Greenland, Texas, Canada, Britain and Spain; George Washington embezzled government funds; 1 of 10 people is not fathered by the man they believe is their dad; Barbie is based on a German sex doll; The American colonists practiced cannibalism, and much more.


Russ Kick books have sold over half a million copies. The New York Times has dubbed him "an information archaeologist," Details magazine described him as "a Renaissance man," and Utne Reader named him one of its "50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World."
