Editorial Reviews

Review

"Once again Mo Rocca delivers a funny and smart offering whilst punning off his first name.” —Jon Stewart

“I'm dead keen to read it and alive with joy at not being included.”—P. J. O'Rourke, author of, most recently, None of My Business

“In our fact-challenged times, Rocca’s joyful tour through the “didja know”s of history is an unexpected antidote.”—The New Yorker

"There’s an attention to detail in Rocca’s book (which he penned with college friend and current professor Jonathan Greenberg) that makes it readable in both long and short bursts....You can pick up the book for a few minutes or an entire afternoon and have a satisfying experience."— Forbes

"[Mo Rocca’s obituaries have] a rare and welcome generosity of spirit…They revisit people who died long ago but were denied full appreciation. They’re exhumation as celebration. —Frank Bruni, New York Times Opinion Columnist

“Mo Rocca is like a box of chocolates; the more you taste him, the more you love him. And he just gets better and better. Read on and enjoy slowly.” —Angie Dickinson, Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actress

“Mo Rocca has given us a candy bowl of tasty morsels: tales of fascinating folks that we don’t know enough about. It’s a joy for curious minds, and addictive reading.” —Walter Isaacson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Steve Jobs and Leonardo da Vinci

“A spicy blend of humor, irony, wit, facts, fable, and heart.” —Kirkus 

"Impeccably researched, this book is packed with facts that are sure to give you a leg up at pub trivia.... a delightful, hilarious romp through history. Put this book in the hands of history buffs or anyone who loves a good laugh."—Booklist
