Overview

Bigger, better, and more useless than ever!

In their groundbreakingly useless book, The Book of Useless Information, the members of the Useless Information Society proved that knowledge doesn't have to be useful to be entertaining. Now they present a new collection of their most fascinating, hilarious, and wholly trivial findings. The Ultimate Book of Useless Information includes such "did you knows" as:

- Peanuts are one of the ingredients in dynamite
- The average person spends two weeks of their life kissing
- And giraffes have no vocal cords

Editorial Reviews

Don't bother trying to teach your giraffe to talk: these long-necked creatures don't have vocal cords. That's just one piece of probably extraneous info furnished by Noel Botham's factoid compendium. The Ultimate Book of Useless Information justifies its title by piling on 288 delightful pages of data that you will savor even if it won't salvage your life. Then again, it's possible that all the information might not be useless to everybody. For example, if you're worried about time constraints, you might cut down on your romantic endeavors: According to Botham, the average person spends two weeks of his or her life kissing.
