Professors will *NoT* be assigning reading in these books

Oh, WOW! For real? Books such as A Cow is too much Trouble in Los Angeles? The Manga Guide to Calculus? Atlas of the Fleas of Britain and Ireland?

I will let AbeBooks speak for itself.

Welcome to AbeBooks Weird Book Room - heralded by The Times, The Guardian, New York Times, and Canada's Globe and Mail as the finest source of everything that's bizarre, odd and downright weird in books. We now have 101 crazy and strange titles about every oddball aspect of life you could possibly imagine and a few things you couldn't possibly imagine.

Clearly, I need to expand my reading horizons! Doga: Yoga for Dogs? Even Ben Franklin is listed.!

Melissa, I expect a review of the Manga Guide to Calculus....

Well, I can't do that one just yet, but I've read The Manga Guide to Molecular Biology. It was strange, yet educational. I believe that, at one point, a character called "Enzyme Man" (or something similar) popped up. I still have The Manga Guide to Statistics on my TBR list. :)
