17 Mythbuster Classics That Could Happen to YouBook - 2006
Mythbusters is one of the most popular shows on TV. Starting with a cult following on the Discovery channel, it has swiftly grown into a primetime show. After 145 shows averaging three myths per show, (it takes three weeks to do a show) Mythbusters Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage can't keep up with the demand, which is one reason the Mythbusters have gone into print. The Introduction is a rare interview with creator and producer of Mythbusters, Peter Rees about the show itself - how it came about, who put the team together and of course, why people are attracted to myths, always have been and always will be. The book describes in detail Jamie and Adam's procedures and conclusions. Following the theme `it could happen to you' the book is peppered with information taken from all 145 shows of the things that can/can't affect you. For example, yes you can get a deadly electric shock from an electric appliance thrown in the bath. But breast implants do not explode under pressure from deep-sea diving or in a plane 7000 feet above sea level.
