Man Robs Bank With His Chin – And Other Unusual Stories Missed By Mainstream Media is a difficult book to describe because there’s nothing to compare it to. Not since Woody Allen’s”Without Feathers” has there been a book this funny and unusual, and it was Woody Allen himself who read some of Jeffrey Gurian’s earliest work and encouraged him to pursue his craft, because it was “so visual.” Woody’s longtime manager Jack Rollins was also very helpful to Jeffrey in getting his work seen, and this book is the culmination of many years of Jeffrey’s work in gathering the most unusual and bizarre stories from across the planet.Jeffrey’s previous work as a writer/reporter for the legendary Weekly World News, where he had his own column called “Gurian’s World of the Bizarre”was the womb where the idea for this book gestated, leading to stories like”Man Robs Bank With His Chin”, “College Professor Fired For Casually Removing His Spine”, and “Man Displays Uncanny Ability To Lift Heavy Objects With His Eye.” When you read this book, you will understand why the Gurian News Network (GNN) logo is “All The News That’s Fit To Dance To!” You can read more about Jeffrey on his website at jeffreygurian.com
