This one is 500 ,jam- packed pages telling you about the origins of all kinds of things,people,organizations,religions,cults,fads,sports,writers,animals,epitaphs,yuppies,marriages,toys,hot pants,movies,actors medicines,cures,superstitions,kitsch history,odd communities,sayings,birth places and real names of famous people,and on and on.Just name about anything ,and you'll learn all about when it started,by whom and why .
A;l the 300 or so things talked about, are covered quickly in a page or two.What I really like about these readers is that they can be opened at any page and it takes only a minute or so to read about any topic.It is very relaxing and a great way to fill a few minutes while in a waiting room,on the john,or simply sitting in a lawn chair,in the bathtub,riding the bus,or to fill a few minutes before finally shutting off the nite-lite.
