1,411 Quite Interesting Facts to Knock You Sideways

We rated this book:


Wouldn’t it be fun to have a compact little book chock full of weird and fascinating factoids to carry around everywhere you go, to fill those odd moments with something more interesting than cell phone solitaire? The perfect answer to that question is here. This little book is just the right size to slip into your pocket, purse, briefcase, or backpack. You might want to keep a copy in the car for long trips and maybe one in the bathroom or keep one on hand for parties. Would it surprise you to know Mozart kept a fart diary? He did. Did you know it is legal in 44 states to eat dogs? Ugh. It is. There’s even a little something in here about ladybugs having sex. The fun and engrossing facts found in this little gem are sometimes repulsive, sometimes lurid, sometimes goofy, but always interesting. One of the really nice things is there is a very comprehensive index so you can find everything, for instance, that is written about snakes (seven references) or eyes (eight references) or anything else you might be interested in. This is sure to become a favorite for a lot of readers.
