  • There have been some pretty great lies told throughout history, and some of the best have been compiled and explained in this fun and enlightening book Divided into 4 sections with 3 or four chapters each, the reader learns about well known people like P.T Barnum and Washington Irving and lesser known people like Pope Leo X and George Hull who played the Cardiff Giant prank You read about poop burgers yuck and Listerine Religious scams, Ponzi schemes and pretenders like Anna Anderson was she the [...]


  • I chose this book because I was interested in the title where it says History s Most Outrageous Lies and Liars Whoppers is many different liars stories of what they lied about, why they lied about that, and how they got caught What I thought was interesting about Whoppers was that it showed backstories of how the liars life was before the lie I didn t love or hate this book, because the story went a bit slow for me It was only certain stories that caught my attention and made me want to know I [...]


  • fun read I thought my 10 year old would get a kick out of it because we have been playing Pass The Buck,a liar s game, but actually the 13 y.o and I have mostly read it format maybe appeals to older.


  • Skimmed over a lot of the information in this book Great for younger readers who are just learning about the weird in the world around us.

  • Seifert s fun, informal but informative writing style keeps readers turning the pages to find out about supposed ancient curses, alien activity, get rich quick schemes and fake discoveries Still, not all of the liars had nefarious designs in mind the book also highlights authors who wrote under pen names and a woman who pretended to be a man in order to fight in the Revolutionary War although two women made it in for passing as men in order to become pirates, a somewhat less noble career choice [...]


  • Reviewed for Foreword Books Indiefab Awards.A fun little collection of the world s greatest liars Unfortunately, there s nothing unique about this book the content has been done before, and even the title is not unique Check it out if you try to search for Whoppers here on , the first book by the same title that is also on this topic that comes up is Whoppers Tall Tales and Other Lies So I give credit to the author that the book is interesting, but I can t give credit for a novel idea.


  • Whoppers is a good introduction to non fiction for young adult readers Christine Seifert s interjections of pop culture to bring home the stories of the past works well to keep each individual piece interesting The articles are also sized for a reader who is looking for something to fill a few minutes and hurry on with their busy day My copy is already moving into the hands of another reader.


  • The book woppers is a very funny book about the most ridiculous lies and it is hard to believe that people believed these liars I really think thta this is a great book and i think people should kniw about it
