In A Curious Man: The Strange and Brilliant Life of Robert "Believe it or Not" Ripley, author Neal Thompson explores the life of a true American original.

With "odditoriums" all over the world and the enduring legacy of his catchphrase, Ripley is well known as a connoisseur of the strange and wonderful. But who was the man behind the brand?

Ripley began his career as a sports cartoonist but stumbled into the world of the weird and never looked back.

I loved "Believe it or not".. I wonder if I can get it on Netflix or Love Film.

I don't know how I missed this on teh BBC web site?
