The Flip Side of History

(Gift for Men Who Have Everything)

By Steve Silverman

Hidden History, Strange Stories, and Hard-to-Believe Headlines 

What if there was a flip side to the history channel? What would you do with all the historical facts and tales left out of history textbooks? From the host of the popular Useless Information podcast, Steve Silverman, comes a collection of fun history facts, strange news, and lost stories.  

True Stories and random trivia that will entertain or liven up any conversation. In The Flip Side of History: Fascinating True Stories that Time Has Long Forgotten, you can read about common folk and not-so-common knowledge. In this collection of over thirty historical events, Steve Silverman provides fascinating stories and easy to read facts. Covering a wide variety of topics, these stories highlight the quirks, complexities, and curiousness of man. 

Stranger than Stranger Things. The Flip Side of History gives you tales full of strange news, trivia, and facts. Some made newspaper headlines, others were lost in history: 

  • A prominent lawyer leaves his entire estate to a town for the establishment of a library that forbids women—setting off riots, arrests, and the near hanging of a judge. 
  • The amazing story of the only person rescued from slavery by the Underground Railroad four times. 
  • That time a man in the 1950s stole hundreds of women’s shoes in Coronado and San Diego, California. The shoes, most of them the left shoe, were found dispersed randomly all over town. 

If you’re a fan of the Florida Man Challenge and books like The Book of Unusual KnowledgeThe Way I Heard It, Interesting Stories for Curious People, or The Greatest Stories Never Told; then The Flip Side of History is the book for you!
