Trivia buffs of the world—this is your book! It’s crammed with 1,001 tidbits of information in such categories as Food & Drink, Television, Art, Business, Health, Religion, and many others. For example, did you know that every strawberry contains over 200 seeds? That the first organized labor strike in the U.S. occurred in Philadelphia in 1786, when local printers demanded higher wages? Or that Jack London was the first novelist to earn one million dollars from his writing? Highlighted with maps and illustrations, this compilation contains a wealth of lists, including the least densely populated countries, the educational institutions of the Ivy League, bands that played at Woodstock, and even the most annoying clichés, as voted by people in 70 countries.

Just facttoids with non of the interesting background. Good as a time waster if you are below 13 years of age. Facts like "what are the names of the US Presidents, in order" type stuff.

I really enjoyed reading through this book. It's a nice one to have if you're one of those people who loves to fill your mind with trivia. I had a great time picking up new and interesting trivia facts and sharing them with my friends. If you're a trivia buff, I would highly recommend this book for you.

Most the facts are ones anyone who finished 8th grade would know! Also after page 33 it kept looping back to page 31. So i cant even read the last 200 pages, but considering how much the first part is standard common knowledge probably not missing much!!!!
