Ripley's Twists bring a fun, engaging and uniquely Ripley's approach to a whole range of topics, from the human body to space. Each title blends stunning full-colour photographs and illustrations with clear explanations and extraordinary facts that are guaranteed to inform and to entertain. In Sports , you will find: key information - everything from the man who runs as fast as a car to the Olympic games for pigs; intriguing bite-size facts - high divers hit the water at an amazing 34 mph; real-life stories - like the man who can pull a 207-ton airplane for 1 minute and 16 seconds using only a length of rope; 'Big word alert' glossaries - clear and straightforward explanations of difficult words such as 'acrobat'; and, stunning photographs and detailed diagrams.

About the Author

Robert LeRoy Ripley was an American cartoonist, who created and developed the world-famous Ripley's Believe It or Not! cartoon strip in the years after the First World War. He travelled the globe in search of unusual objects and stories, and built up an extraordinary collection of everything from shrunken heads to dinosaur eggs and iron maidens. These are now exhibited in Ripley museums around the world, including one in London's Piccadilly Circus. The Ripley's Believe It or Not! annual has become an international best-seller.
