If you're looking for a way to simultaneously increase your knowledge and wow your friends with your infinite brainiac abilities, than this is definitely the book for you!

101 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW...AND SOME YOU DON'T! includes just that -- 101 sometimes interesting, sometimes obscure, sometimes downright gross facts about everything from science, nature, and animals to the universe, history, and the human body.

Some of my favorites include "What is the worse smell ever?" Answer: a toss-up between a skunk, a corpse flower, and durian fruit, which smells like raw sewage. Or "Are you only ever a few feet from a rat in a big city?" Answer: pretty much, yes. Which, when you think about it, is quite disgusting. "How much does the earth weigh?" Answer: a little over 13 million billion billion pounds. And you thought you needed to go on a diet!

The book also includes handy-dandy stickers, which you can use to mark your progress when you've learned a new fact, additional facts and data that (mostly) have something to do with the fact you've just mastered, and extras such as a checklist, extra paper, and a list where you can mark down things you'd like to know that weren't covered in the book.

So, although this is a book that can most assuredly make you look smart(er) in front of your friends, results aren't guaranteed to last forever -- unless you put a little brain power into it!
