Publisher's Summary

A treasure trove filled with fascinating anecdotes about the tiny ripples that have caused big waves in history, Hitler's Secret Jewish Psychic will cure you of two misconceptions: the first being that history is relentlessly boring and the second that significant historical events are caused by significant and great causes.

Here you'll unearth a multitude of facts you never knew were true. You'll learn some unbelievable things about some of the most prominent figures in history. (Picasso was stillborn until his uncle revived him by blowing cigar smoke in his face!) You'll discover facts about some of the most famous wars in history. (Japan actually manufactured balloons carrying deadly diseases, which they attempted to send over the Pacific Ocean to the United States.)

Other strange facts include:

  • The career Fidel Castro almost chose over his leadership of Cuba
  • Where Eli Whitney got the idea for his invention of the cotton gin
  • What almost happened during the Wrights brothers' first successful flight
  • Why certain literary works almost never saw the light of publication
  • What day should have really been designated Independence Day
  • The truth behind Winston Churchill's daring escape from a Boer War prisoner-of-war camp
  • Franklin Roosevelt's campaign cover-up
  • The behind-the-scenes beliefs of Isaac Newton
  • And many more!
It is true that many things you hear should be taken with a pinch of salt; nothing proves this so much as Hitler's Secret Jewish Psychic, where you will discover the outrageous secrets history has tried (and failed) to keep.

interesting facts, poor narration

The narrator is very dead pan, making it hard to realize when he's moved on to a different topic or chapter. I really enjoy books by the author but won't get another one read by this narrator. very disappointing.

Very good, but

I loved learning the little known history facts. I just have two complaints. First, some of the content is mentioned in other books by the author. Second, the content seems to have no organizational structure. That said, this book is a lot of fun.
