I bought this for my grandfather for Christmas. It didn't fail as a gift at all. My grandfather who never wants anything, always has a quench for new knowledge. This book worked perfect. And for the first time in my 41 years he didn't complain that I bought him a present.

This is another great book in this series. I'm buying the whole collection. These are great to have especially if you have kids and want them to read more and play video games less. Make it a family hour or two.

I loved this book when I was younger, and thought it'd be the perfect gift for someone I know! It's a book that contains lots of little tidbits that you will never find a use for, and that's exactly what it's meant to be! Great for kids.

I love this book. It is full of things you don't need to know but are interested to learn when you read it. The best part is that you can read it over and over and still not absorb all of the useless information it contains. Simple entertainment.

I love these books. I have about 5 of them now. I do wish they would give references so that you know what they are telling you is true. Overall they are fun to read and filled with very interesting "facts".

Once again more information than you really need to know is just a page away. How this guy keeps coming up with useless bits of knowledge is just miraculous. All of his books in this series are hard to put down.
