This book tells you so many interesting facts that most people have never even heard of. I actually wrote to the address the book gave for a Dinosaur Hunting License, and received one. I've read this book four times and would love to read it more!

I took this book out of the library in high school and returned it 5 years after I graduated. Now, I want to know where I can get my hands on another copy. It's great reading for someone who is laid up in bed and looking for some quick, light reading.

I work at an office where there are open abysses of space. I usually find myself upon Google looking up weird facts and seeking other somewhat intellectual entertainment forms. This book is great and has random things that have happened in history as well. It's fun to rattle off some relevant fact to your friends who usually just end up laughing. I've had a great time with this goofy book!

This book made such an impression on me when I was 14 years old that I think of it often and always wondered where I could get it! I read it to my mom while she was in a coma... and she came out of it laughing! I'm serious! I love this book because it's easy to read in tough situations. Great light reading. A good bathroom book, too! :-)

If I ever learned anything in my life it came from this book. I Can't remember half the stuff that I "Learned" in High School but I will always remember that it is impossible to sneaze with your eyes open and the origin of the seventh inning streach. Now if only they would re-release it so I can buy a copy or ten.
