Format: Paperback
Totally fun book. You find out that fortune cookies never were Chinese, and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is not the longest word in English, and that Americans eat (yes) 20 billion hotdogs per year. This book is ideal for party games or just dipping into when alone. Stewart did a great job ferreting out funny facts. Did you know that sea otters have the thickest fur of any animal in the world?

This book is a deeply entertaining read. You can either test your own knowledge from the comfort of your tub, or pass it around at a house party and you and your friends can stump each other.

Highly recommended.

I'll admit, I was entertained until I stopped reading just short of half-way through. I'm fairly sure that Thomas Jefferson was the second US vice president and the third President. This book says he was the third VP and fourth President. After that mistake, I lost interest.

The book was funny and fun to read until I got to the part about Thomas Jefferson. As another reviewer mentioned the author has the wrong facts on our THIRD president (book says 4th). Before the TJ error I had noticed a few other editing errors; some items were marked Fact but you could tell from the phrasing that they were actually the BS answer. For those it was obvious that they just got the labels mixed up and I was fairly forgiving. After seeing the TJ entry I deleted this from my Kindle (glad it was free). With a mistake on something so basic I can't trust anything the book says. Ironically I was on my way, with my family, to tour Monticello when I was reading the book.

I love trying to figure out if something is true or "bull" (Amazon won't let me actually use the word that's in the title of the book.)

I had a great time with this book. But as another reviewer pointed out, the book made a really major error in stating that Thomas Jefferson was the third Vice President and fourth President. It then says, "That one was a gimme!" Except that one was WRONG. He was the second Vice President and third President. I'm not going from memory; I looked it up to be sure I was remembering correctly.

So I'd say anything in this book should be taken with a grain of salt. It's for fun. If you're looking for facts, look them up in reliable sources. That's the only error I noticed, but it may not be the only one.

However, I'm not going to let an error ruin a fun book. It's like a game, to me, and I enjoyed it a lot. I always look up things I'm not sure about anyway, so one wrong answer out of an entire book (although it was a pretty weird thing to get wrong) isn't that big a deal to me. If this were a history text, I'd have a different opinion on that.

Published by Adams Media in 2011

This book was a first for me in a way. Fact. Fact. Bulls***! was the first book I ever read on my phone thanks to the Kindle app for my android phone. In a way, this book was made for reading on a little phone screen. It is entirely composed of a topic with three "facts" that follow. After that the reader will find out that at least one of those "facts" will be correct and at least one will be incorrect, or bulls*** as the title notes. The facts and the bulls*** answers are explained.

This makes for fairly interesting short-term reading but it is not built for the long haul. This would be a great book to have for standing in line at the bank or if you have to wait for a bus or a train because you can get in and out of a topic in just a few minutes.

But...some of Stewart's facts are more factual than others. For example, he incorrectly states as a "fact" that Thomas Jefferson was the fourth president and the third vice president. In reality, he was the third president and the second VP.

When it comes to the NASCAR set of "facts" there are multiple problems. He addresses the widely held belief that Danica Patrick is the first woman to race for NASCAR's Winston Cup, which he notes is incorrect, but on multiple levels that he fails to mention. Danica is not the first woman to race in NASCAR, which he correctly notes. However, he only mentions Janet Guthrie, who first competed in NASCAR in 1976. Other women competed in NASCAR's top level as early as 1949, but they are not mentioned. Also, he fails to note that Danica never competed for the "Winston" Cup since its name was changed in in 2004. Also, he notes in his "fact" section that the largest NASCAR event can hold as many as 170,000 fans. That is incorrect.

I bought this because I saw it at my neighbor's house. I am a lover of quirky facts, and this book feeds that passion! My daughter and I (7) love reading through it and guessing at which statements are fact and which are not. What I love most is that I know she's absorbing/learning, in the disguise of having fun. Furthermore, it is a quick read, you can just pop in and read a page or 2, since each subject is just one page, front and bag. You can flip through the different sections easily to find topics that pique your interest. In fact, this could be marketed as a great bathroom book!

This book incorrectly states that the original Star Wars trilogy won zero Oscars, but was only nominated for a total of 6. This is incorrect, as can easily be checked on IMDB. The original film was actually nominated for 10 Oscars, including best picture, and won 6.
