Format: Paperback
Totally fun book. You find out that fortune cookies never were Chinese, and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is not the longest word in English, and that Americans eat (yes) 20 billion hotdogs per year. This book is ideal for party games or just dipping into when alone. Stewart did a great job ferreting out funny facts. Did you know that sea otters have the thickest fur of any animal in the world?

This book is a deeply entertaining read. You can either test your own knowledge from the comfort of your tub, or pass it around at a house party and you and your friends can stump each other.

Highly recommended.

I'll admit, I was entertained until I stopped reading just short of half-way through. I'm fairly sure that Thomas Jefferson was the second US vice president and the third President. This book says he was the third VP and fourth President. After that mistake, I lost interest.

There were too many errors to make it worth finishing, as other reviewers have noted. Worthless, poorly edited junk. The author should be embarrassed.

The book was funny and fun to read until I got to the part about Thomas Jefferson. As another reviewer mentioned the author has the wrong facts on our THIRD president (book says 4th). Before the TJ error I had noticed a few other editing errors; some items were marked Fact but you could tell from the phrasing that they were actually the BS answer. For those it was obvious that they just got the labels mixed up and I was fairly forgiving. After seeing the TJ entry I deleted this from my Kindle (glad it was free). With a mistake on something so basic I can't trust anything the book says. Ironically I was on my way, with my family, to tour Monticello when I was reading the book.

Different type of book. I learned a few things so far and enjoyed the format with three statement on a wide variety of topics. Some of them did surprise me.

This book incorrectly states that the original Star Wars trilogy won zero Oscars, but was only nominated for a total of 6. This is incorrect, as can easily be checked on IMDB. The original film was actually nominated for 10 Oscars, including best picture, and won 6.

It would have been fun, but because of the mistakes I found, I now cannot trust ANY of the answers anymore. Could have used better proof-reading/editing.
