This is an awesome book for trivia junkies- the amount of research that must have went into this is astounding. I laughed so hard at times and at other times was completely disgusted. Very interesting book!
This book was hilarious. It was a paper addiction for me. I couldn't put the thing down. I couldn't believe some of the twisted facts in this thing. I'd swap it so you could read it but I'm keeping this thing. My friends who have looked through it were laughing at times and weree speechless at other times.
