Why is our lucky 13th edition All-Purpose? Uncle John himself explains: “You can read this Bathroom Reader anywhere—in the obvious spot, in bed or, heck, by the pool or at work.” Why Extra-Strength? “Because of the mountains of research gathered, you can guess where, by our crackpot…I mean hotshot…staff.” Yes, APES (as we affectionately call it at the BRI) is filled to the rim with more than 500 pages of amazing facts, quotes, history, myths, brain teasers, origins, celebrity gossip, and our powerful brand of “uncanny” humor. Here are 13 reasons to read this book:

1. Triskaidekaphobia, the fear of ten plus three
2. Military surplus: The story of carrot cake
3. The real-life inspiration behind Dracula
4. Going Ape: The history of Tarzan
5. People who married themselves
6. Politically incorrect toothpaste
7. Legendary business blunders
8. Hollywood’s biggest bombs
9. Wide world of weird sports
10. Dog food for thought
11. The birth of the CD
12. Dumb criminals
13. Zappa’s Law
And much, much more!

Yes, I read the whole thing. It's a great little book, whatever purpose you might have in owning it. It's full of interesting tidbits that you can read wherever you are. If you are a trivia fan, this is definitely for you. I can't believe anyone would rate this book with one star. What were they expecting???

especially when it's useless trivia. I was at my moms when I first picked this one up and couldn't get enough. I had to get it for myself.

If you are someone who loves little known facts, trivia, and pop culture history, then you will LOVE this book and the others in the series. You will soon want to read them ALL! The person who thought of these books is brilliant.
