Ben le Vay points out that true eccentrics think of themselves as entirely normal, hence the serious competition that takes place in cheese-rolling and wife-carrying, and the extraordinary follies meticulously built for no apparent purpose. This book presents a list of bizarre buildings, baffling customs and daft sports, with a location map and information for places and events that can be visited.
