If you're looking for a fun gift for a milestone birthday that some might consider "useless" (like my husband's 60th surprise party!) this is a great little book. As the cover says, "Thousands of things you didn't think you nneeded to know.... and probably don't". Give it a shot!
This is the perfect "bathroom reader!" Except that my husband kept coming out with the book in-hand, saying, "Hey, did you know....?"
Fun useless facts!
Approximately 7 factoids per page, 286 pages, I'll let you do the math. Many of them seem more useful than most information I run across during the day. A couple picked at random: It takes a plastic container 50,000 years to start decomposing. Reindeer have scent glands between their hind toes.
A useful book for leaving around to read at odd moments.
Interesting, but much of it highly inaccurate.
This book has some interesting information. It's not information you need to know but still interesting.
