    Decent, but not the best there is

    It's a very good read, but not the best. If your looking for the best I highly recommend The Book of General Ignorance.

    Interesting and Informative

    This is a great book that covers lots of different topics. You'll definitely learn a lot. Ever wonder what the last official words were said on the moon? Ever want to know how to appropriately use "who" and "whom"? Ever want to know......<BR/><BR/>This book will tell you. It's interesting and informative. You'll definitely learn something. You may not become a genius, per se, but you'll have more to discuss at parties after reading. Very good book that I highly recommend you purchase.
