Everyone’s a Winner
A guide to the world’s weirdest, most thrilling competitions
You’ll encounter the startling facts behind peat-bog snorkeling in Wales (wet suits recommended), hotdog-swallowing in the USA (tip: avoid breakfast), or who can make a baby cry quickest in Japan. Through this gallimaufry of gamesmanship and passion, an endearingly warm and affectionate portrait of human endeavor and good humor emerges as Holmes proves, page after page, that when it comes to feats of bravery, endurance, or sheer nonsense, the world is united as one in the fine and often hilarious way of celebrating culture.
