Format: Paperback
If you enjoy trivia games, you will want to have this book. No, it is not lengthy, but is does provide a few hours of enjoyment and fun. In addition, you will be amazed at what you can learn on a variety of topics from business, art, and mythology to math, sports and literature.
So, what is "keraunothnetophobia"? Believe it or not, that for me was one of the easy ones, learned from my studies in psychology. It is the fear of "falling man-made satellites." Actually, there are hundreds of known phobias (fears) but, needless to say, that is not one of the commonly known ones. However, when it came to sports, I completely bombed out in that category! The book is a real eye-opener in discovering just how little the average person truly does know! You may do exceedingly well in one category, but some of the other ones will really make your head spin. Hold onto your thinking cap; many of the questions are not easy.
If you are feel a need to challenge your knowledge and mental stamina, by all means buy this book. It is meant to be fun, and it is fun - enjoy!

Format: Paperback
This book contains many well-worn 'facts' that have circulated for years, and have been debunked long ago, including "the reason people say 'Cheers'" mentioned in the canonical review above, the origin of the word "posh," and "kings in decks of cards are based on historical kings."
Don't trust anything in this book, which seems to have been created by collecting and sorting hundreds of e-mailed lists of apocrypha.

Format: Paperback
A must-have for anyone who sneaks a peek at "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" or "Jeopardy". This book shows what quiz questions should be like - ones that have answers that simply amaze you.

Format: Paperback
This book has some really interesting trivia a passionate quizzer would like to know. I would probably rate it 4.5/5. Would have loved it if it had more because the quality of questions was pretty good. The bottom line, and all that matters is its worth the money!!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is full of errors and myths and unsubstantiated "non-facts". I was looking forward to engaging my mom in a fun activity to help stimulate her brain as she begins the slippery slide into the world of dememtia. She still gets a kick out of learning and is fascinated by obscure and interesting facts. I was disappointed by the frequency of inaccurate "information".
