This book has been very good you can read it over and over and still it bends your mind into what is really true in this world I for one didnt know that one of the Kiss members was a school teacher. i would recommend this book to anyone who likes looking up fun facts from everywhere, it is one of these books that you can finish it and then start over from the begining because you cant beleive it, Don Voorhees has made the Perfectly Useless book of useless information and turned it into for me the Perfectly useful book of useful information so I can tell people fun facts about the world we live in.
