"Along with pointing out why much-loved legends are asinine, Roeper isn't above going for laughs (and getting most of them)." -- Booklist "[Roeper's] hyped up on information and lays it all out there in easy-to-follow logic." -- Chicago Sun-Times "Roeper injects lots of humor and fun into his dissections and isn't afraid to get on his soapbox." -- Pop Syndicate "A very entertaining book." --blogcritics.org
