    " As I read this, I wavered between giving this book three or four stars. I was aggravated by some entries because Jennings seemed to leave out some important points. For example, it was interesting to learn that it can actually be healthy to eat your own boogers, but he failed to mention that most people, especially kids, don't wash their hands after picking. Yeah, your own germs won't hurt you, but what about the rest of us?! It is Jennings wit and humor that nudged the fourth star out of me. I nearly popped my own eye out of its socket while reading, "Never sneeze with your eyes open--your eyeballs will pop out!" (pp. 145-147). There is a multitude of pop culture references sprinkled throughout the book, and I caught them because I'm the same age as Jennings. I think a lot of those references would be lost on readers born after, say, 1980, and perhaps before 1945 or so. If you watched *Little House on the Prairie,* *Punky Brewster,* and *The Breakfast Club," you'll probably get most of the jokes. "

    " Very interesting book full of all those myths that you heard as a kid. It was amazing to read it around my husband and family and just call out the myth to see their initial response and then prove them wrong again and again. Having all the scientific data to back it up made you feel all warm and fuzzy and safe inside knowing that you won't die/get sick/lose some appendage/etc from these legends. Highly recommended if you want quick little reads to keep you occupied and full of fun party conversation starters. "

    " Easy read, and full of fun facts that will largely remind reader if childhood. "

    " Ken Jennings certainly has a humorous way of writing that kept me engaged from start to finish. I loved this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon Gryder | 2/8/2014

    " Great book by an awesome guy. Not quite "Maphead" good but certainly worth a read. I was amazed to find out that some of the myths I thought were false were actually true, and vice versa. It is amazing what a little scientific method can do. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robinne | 1/29/2014

    " Abandoned this. It felt contrived and arduous, especially in comparison to Maphead, which seemed light and breezy and pleasantly effortless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cara | 1/11/2014

    " I found this book snarky, interesting and supremely comforting. I also found myself talking about it a lot. A winner for sure! "

    " Great book! Listened to the author-narrated audio book version on a road trip. I like how he divided the myths into different categories and tackled them according to what they dealt with (seasons, eyes, bathroom, bodily harm, sickness, etc). I learned quite a bit. Gave me a few chuckles as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz DeCoster | 12/25/2013

    " A funny, quick read, even if most of the information is probably also available on Snopes.com. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Berger | 7/26/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. Many of these sayings my parents used and I used some with my boys. Some I already knew were false others I was surprised at whether they were true or false. The background of where they came from or why they are true mostly true or false was interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 6/21/2013

    " This was a quick read with some interesting sections. I was a little confused by the "truth" meters at the end of each section as the narrative didn't always jive with it. Overall, it was a pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 5/22/2013

    " I can't remember the last time I picked up so much information in such a concentrated dose, liberally sprinkled with laugh-out-loud humor. Highly recommended. "

    " Laughed most of the way through. "

    " ok book about moder mythology "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryle Fisher | 4/15/2013

    " Ken Jennings, former Jeopardy champion, has researched the myths that our mothers have always warned us with and found the real truth behind them. He alerts us to whether they are true or false and what to do with them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 7/14/2012

    " I enjoyed Because I Said So!; it hit almost all of the things that I was told and have started telling my children in a humorous manner and I learned some new things. The only problem- I let my son read parts and now he knows what I'm saying isn't true! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline Niziol | 12/24/2011

    " Fun & quick read. Ken has an engaging style so I can't be fully jealous of his brain or success. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 sima | 3/1/2011

    " Cute easy read. I love little nuggets of info like this. Parents should encourage their kids to read it - it would be a fun bonding source "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Ginsburg | 1/14/2011

    " Entertaining, educational and a good conversation starter! If you want to know the truth behind adages like "light a match in there, it'll get rid of the smell" this book is for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Gross | 9/14/2009

    " Everything your mother told you was wrong. Interesting and funny, just like all of Ken Jenning's books. Recommended. "

    " Hilarious, well written, and well researched. I'm now looking forward to reading Mr. Jennings' other books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 3/22/2007

    " Quick book - actually read it in an hour at the library. Very witty writing with a few laugh out loud moments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crazycatlady | 9/6/2005

    " An interesting and often humorous light read. I always knew my parents were full of crap. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gracy | 9/12/2004

    " Not as good as his other two books, but still a good read. I think the format gave too much pressure to be constantly witty and he fell flat once in a while. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 11/20/2002

    " Enjoyable and interesting. This is basically Mythbusters in text. "
