I bought this book last year as a gift for a friend and then bought a copy for myself. So many interesting and fun facts that I never learned in school. Nice little quiz at the end also. I do also like that it is hardcover in a size you can easily carry around. Will be ordering another copy for a friend who I'm sure will enjoy.
