My wife and I like to have a book that we can read to each other alternately every night, and The Book of Unusual Knowledge fits the bill nicely. We haven't gotten very far in it, but what we've read about movies and Hollywood has been stuff we didn't already know. It's well written and fun so far. Also, we love the look and feel of the book; it has great physical presence.

It's a fat "Uncle John's Bathroom Reader". Same kind of stories. Just not as portable.
Not a bad book for killing a few minutes now and then. Buy it used and you will feel like you got a good deal.

I thought this was an ideal graduation gift, with a few extra $ placed inside to denote extra interesting sections. My crew perused the book several times before we delivered it! Boy, are we smarter!

Another vast wealth of fun facts and interesting knowledge. Even though there is little applicable use for the information, one cannot help but to feel smarter after having read it.
