100 Things You're Not Supposed to Know

( 9 )

Overview

Here's the big, not-so-secret secret. People in power--government and religious leaders, heads of big corporations, the rich and well connected--all have one major goal: to stay in power. And they'll do whatever it takes to make sure that happens. Sometimes this means suppressing the truth and covering up facts that might make the rest of us angry enough to challenge the powerful--or at least to have a good laugh at their expense.

    Very small, not exactly cutting edge information

    I've enjoyed the other books published by "Disinformation" purely because the fed my curiosity but I am somewhat dissapointed in this particular edition. There were probably two interesting entries but the rest, in my opinion, were space fillers. This book is also very small, pocket sized. Not really worth the money I paid.

    Lauged so hard I cried.

    This book is a great read. It is short, but well organized and fascinating. There are things in this book that I would have never thought possible. I found it quite fun to read with another person in order to have stimulating conversations about the book's content. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

    Interesting Book

    I purchased this book for a a teacher friend of mine who loves random trivia. I became so absorbed with the book that I plan to purchase another copy for myself. This is a great coffee table read - it would certainly foster conversation among guests.<BR/><BR/>The book is basically filled with random facts about things that people don't generally know regarding all time periods and subjects (Salem Witch Trials, the Holocaust, Shakespeare, sex, etc) but the book is so thoroughly researched that it's completely engrossing. Also, many of the entries are written with dry humor and wit. You can read one entry or several - it's made for skimming at your leisure.

    Really Good

    Loads of fun facts that are easy to learn and recall. Anyone who likes to have a broad plethora of trivial knowledge should read this.<BR/><BR/>However, there is one thing I'd like to criticize: The titles for the little tidbits are a little misleading sometimes. When the author talks about atomic bombs being dropped in North Carolina, he means the bombs are literally DROPPED. Not detonated, they fall. (One of them is retrieved, but the nuclear material from the other was never recovered)
