    A Curious Man is the marvelously compelling biography of Robert “Believe It or Not” Ripley, the enigmatic cartoonist turned globetrotting millionaire who won international fame by celebrating the world's strangest oddities, and whose outrageous showmanship taught us to believe in the unbelievable. As portrayed by acclaimed biographer Neal Thompson, Ripley’s life is the stuff of a classic American fairy tale. Buck-toothed and cursed by shyness, Ripley turned his sense of being an outsider into an appreciation for the strangeness of the world.

    Story

    This is a good listen for a long drive or a day spent in the garden. Undemanding and fun - an excellent story with lots of little details that hold your attention. Ripley lived a great life, full of adventure, fun and self-indulgence - much to be admired if perhaps not emulated. Also a reflection on a bygone time, when the world was far from fully connected and full of many different and fascinating cultures.
