Being of Italian descent, I was immediately drawn to the chapters on "Cuisine & Culinary Contributions" and to "Holidays, Traditions & People". Then, because of my interest in genealogy, "Italian Americans & Immigration" also captured my interest. I must admit though, I began learning what I didn't know almost immediately and then I was hooked on discovering the treasures of this book from its beginning pages!
_The Ultimate Italian Trivia_ will make an excellent addition to your reference library or an ideal gift for anyone interested in Italy and the Italian people and culture. Well done, Bravo!
as described, packaged well.
Would use again.
Mr. Scott Paul Frush has got to have energy beyond a normal human. Besides being President of Frush Financial Services, he is also a well published author. With three other books to his credit (Optimal Investing, Asset Allocation, and Understanding Hedge Funds [coming soon]), he has proven himself a diversified individual. Being from Michigan I am proud to see someone that is noted for something other than the auto industry. Scott received his bachelors from Eastern Michigan University and his masters from Notre Dame. Utilizing his extended financial expertise and his writing skills Mr. Frush is also publisher of the Journal of Asset Allocation a financial advisor magazine. Being a self-proclaimed history buff and Italian culture connoisseur with an avid talent and penchant for writing; Mr. Frush has written this hilariously funny and very informative book called "Ultimate Italian Trivia"
"Ultimate Italian Trivia" is full of everything you wanted to know about Italy, the Italian people and their culture. What is a non-Italian doing writing a book about Italian trivia? Who knows, but he sure has done his homework. Frush has written more than just a trivia book, he has written a non-official reference manual on Italy. He may not include every detail of Italian history, but with the information packed into these 254 pages; you will sound like an expert. Frush takes you from the B.C. (Before Christ) era to the present day and everything in between. Why is the town of Rome, Georgia named after Rome, Italy? It is built on seven hills just like Rome, Italy. Unbelievable facts that are scattered throughout this ingenious book will keep you turning the pages. Had it not been for the Italians, we would still be wiping our noses with our sleeves; read the book to see what the Italians invented. Just a few of the topics Fush touches on are: Art, Music and Architecture, Government Organization and Leadership, Science, Biology and Inventions and many others.
"Ultimate Italian Trivia" is the ultimate book for the Italian wannabe. Impress friends (Italian or not), learn valuable information, acquire an appreciation for another culture and most of all, realize what a great contribution Italians made to the world.
Frush's book, "Ultimate Italian Trivia" is well written, very informative, thoroughly researched and fun to read. The many fine pictures and illustrations were an additional plus and made it even more enjoyable. I enjoyed the book very much and wish Frush luck on his language lessons. "Ultimate Italian Trivia" received my highest A+ rating and deserves a look. Pick it up and see if you don't agree? Magnifico!
