Always check "more" under the video to see what sources he uses.

He has an incredible collection of books.

Incredible collection of books or not credible collection of books? I'm not a native english speaker but i think it could mean both.

it means that it is so amazing that it is almost not credible that it can be so amazing. ( i'm not native neither btw ). The same goes for several other european languages.
