You can basically guarantee that this book will be a conversation piece. Having company over and afraid of the potential uncomfortable silence? Put this book on the coffee table and when someone inevitably picks it up and starts looking, you will have a conversation before you know it.

WARNING: There are lots of gross and possibly upsetting photos in this book. Do not allow your children access to it on their own, especially if they are very sensitive. I was sick to my stomach with at least one thing in here and I’m an adult.

Your best bet is to scan the photos and if something weirds you out, look away and go on to the next thing. There are lots of fun, amazing and cool stories and photos in here so I don’t recommend just not reading it.
