Being less than tall hasn’t done Danny de Vito or Tom Cruise any harm, or hampered them from having gorgeous women clinging to their arms. Being tall doesn’t guarantee riches or happiness, yet some people still hanker after being taller. Short of the torture stretching racks used in Medieval days there really isn’t a handy solution once the bones have fused in adulthood, and even the racks weren’t used as a means of increasing height but rather of inflicting hideous torture.
Is it True?
Naturally though there are people willing to take advantage of peoples desires and if you want to be taller there will be someone out there promising you a solution, for a price. “The world’s best selling book” is the label on Robert Grand’s book ‘Growing Taller Secrets’ in which he touts that it is possible to grow taller despite having no scientific credentials. All you have to do is send off the $39 for the book which will impart the great secret which remains a mystery to everyone else.
Of course only through the book will you “learn the most important formula to accomplish anything in your life including growing taller.” It sounds as about as authentic as the miracle diets which will make you lose 30lbs in a week. If such a secret had been discovered then Mr Grand could have made a few million out of it rather than purveying it through ebooks.
