How did they know that?,
This review is from: I Used to Know That: Stuff You Forgot From School (Hardcover)
I keep this little book on my coffee table and everytime someone comes over to my house they find another tibit of information which is both helpful and entertaining. The section on percentages helped me refresh my math skills when trying to figure out a sale price and book created a new guessing game for my guests. What is the capital of Bahrain or whose nickname is the Peace Garden state? I personally like the section on British and American poets--they provide a biography of the poet with a quotable passage.
