    "This e-book is very informative and was written by an industry expert. The only problem I have with this solution is that the book is fairly lengthy at almost 300 pages. Simplified resources explaining the Mandela effect can be located on the Internet fairly easily."

    "our memory is literally the most unreliable mechanism we have your brain recreates and changes a memory every time you try to remember it things like "captain crunch" and "luke, i am your father" can easily be explained by people quoting the phrases regularly no-one is gonna say "cap'n crunch" and also "luke, i am your father" contextually makes more sense than walking around spouting "no, i am your father" to people"

    "I've never heard of the Mandela effect. When I hear Mandela, I think Nelson of South Africa. This book was kinda of mind-blowing to me as an introduction to the Mandela effect, and definitely an interesting read. Sadly, not many reviews yet on Amazon, but it is a reasonably priced paperback."
