If you like science, urban legends, and humor, Mythbusters is the show for you. In this book, some of the favorite myths are explored, from how they got started to the results. Included are comments from the show’s hosts – Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage – as well as from the show’s producer/creator – Peter Rees. Mythbusters first aired on the Discovery channel in 2003 and is still delighting and educating people of all ages. For those of you who are already fans, you might enjoy the first part of the book which gives brief descriptions of how Jamie and Adam ended up as co-hosts on this fun and informative show.
