Do Giraffes Sleep Standing Up?: ...and more than 900 other trivia questionsby Jon Wilman
We call this the Information Age, but how well-informed are we? For example, how many of us can identify the world’s smallest fish or America’s deepest Great Lake? Can you name all the presidents who earned Ph.Ds or won a Nobel Prize? Do you know who fought at the O.K. Corral or who killed Jesse James? Where did the teens of Beverly Hills 90210 hang out? What was the occupation of Walt Disney’s Seven Dwarfs? Do ducks sleep with their eyes opened or closed?
Do Giraffes Sleep Standing Up? enables you to answer all these questions and hundreds more. With this book in tow, you’ll be able to stump friends and partygoers with puzzlers about history, sports, entertainment, wildlife, and almost every form of human endeavor. Your buddies will marvel at your grasp of fascinating minutiae. How many of them know, for instance, what species possesses the most legs (millipedes have 750) or who invented the zipper? Whether your specialty is baseball or biology; movies or music; pop culture or geography; this handy hardcover will amuse you and sharpen your wits. Even quiz show champs can learn something from this crowd pleaser.
A treasure trove for any would-be trivia whiz…….
