    If you like useless information...

    This would be the place to get it. I've learned a lot of things I never knew I wanted to know while reading this book. It's incredibly entertaining and a real conversation starter with friends. Also a great book to take along if you're going to need to wait somewhere. Quick little bits of information guarantee that you won't be stopped in the middle of a sentence or paragraph when you need to get going again.
