    Easy and fun light reading

    This book focuses on some lesser known mysteries instead of those big and obvious. A trivia buff will glean many opportunities to show off and anyone can enjoy thumbing through the sections. More coffee table reading (too big for the bathroom) than overly academic. Great gift!
