I bought this as a gift for my husband who is a history trivia nut, but he was disappointed in the type of information it contained. My adult daughter loved the diverse topics of American trivia (and consequently, hid it in her coat pocket to take to her house). Rather than the constitutional and political tidbits my husband hoped for, it had tidbits about people, places, and things. Why was the first American flag created so large? When was the real date of American independence? We read some things aloud at the dinner table -- many of the short stories are quite humorous, but all stimulate discussion on varying levels. I'd recommend it for middle schoolers to adult!

We all remember these things but at times we just need to be reminded. Also, a source to end arguments among friends on who did what when and where. Not just a dry rendition of facts. Should be required reading for parents.

What a great refresher on American History! A quick read at a moments notice tantalizing tidbits of some of what America is about. If the subject needs more in depth research then it is a good spring board to dive in.

An amusing selection of "Stuff", not just need-to-know information. A great item for passing the time waiting for appointments. Compact size makes it convenient to tote around.

Fun little book. My husband got one and liked it so I bought one for my best friend's boyfriend.
Great for the person who thinks he knows everything.
