This book is filled with subject matter that is not for children at all. The cover and the description make it seem like it would be a great book for a curious and intelligent pre-teen who loves history, but most of the stories seem to be about murder and there is also a lot of sexual content. I bought this as a gift for my son and can''t give it to him, and I''m disappointed.

I thought this book was for children because it claimed "curious" stories about history and science. However, I am very disappointed about it after I read some of them to my daughter. It has stories about alcoholics, a lot of supernatural stories, and a lot of stories that no one understands. Totally trash!

Author Bill O’Neill has authored many books on Trivia and stands as somewhat of an expert in this field! His topics include movies, football, baseball, wars, rock music, simply random trivia facts and US States. Now with a nod to providing interesting reading material while passing the time at home, Bill offers a cascade of stories that provide not only entertainment but also so educational topics!

Providing an overview of the topics of interest in this book, Bill outlines his content in the Introduction – ‘This book will introduce you to some of the strangest facts on the face of the earth. You’ll learn about a Kansas town that people claim is so haunted that many call it the “Gateway to Hell,” as well as an urban myth about a Soviet drilling expedition that may – or may not have – opened a portal to Hell. You’ll learn about historical facts that were more than likely overlooked in your history classes. How Alexander the Great dies, how Cleopatra died, what happened to American Indian leader Sequoya, and the truth about Christopher Columbus’ expedition are just a few of the historical stories you’ll read about…You’ll read about a star that is many times bigger and brighter than our own, what will happen when computers become self-aware, what causes “brain freeze,” and how the government has been actively searching for extraterrestrials.’

And if that tasty intro doesn’t convince you to explore this fascinating book, add in stories about pop culture, sports stories about athletes, and even a few true crime tales to boot.

Not only is the book entertaining – it is also very instructive. For those familiar with Bill O’Neill’s talent for tickling the brain, this book is a must read – one of his best. For those who are simply looking for solid entertaining reading to while away the hours, welcome to the field expert! Highly recommended – especially during these times… Grady Harp, March 20

This is an excellent book with interesting information in it. Readers of this book could gain some additional knowledge that they did not have before reading this book. Some of the interesting information in this book includes the following information: There are three downs per possession in the Canadian Football League compared to four in the National Football League in the United States. The CFL stadiums are much smaller than the NFL stadiums. The town of Arica with over 200,000 inhabitants is the driest city in the world. Other than the main road that connects to Bolivia, the roads in and out of the city are very primitive. Tom Dooley was a man named Tom Dula. Due to people''s accent in that part of Appalachia, Dula''s last name was pronounced with a long e sound. Billy the Kid was born Henry McCarty in 1859, but often went by the alias William Bonney.

Now I will say at the start of this review if you are into trivia and such these stories will be familiar to you. However there are some new items also. That is the thing about trivia books. There is a lot you already know, but then you find a little nugget about an item that you didn''t know. That is the fun in reading books likes this those hidden nuggets that you find. Now there is always something new to read , but for me it is the little extra bits that keep me reading. I will keep reading books like this because I like to be amused by the trivia.

As a long time reader of this author''s many books, I found this book to be very interesting, because it does not give one-line definitions or meanings to questions, but whole stories and histories of that piece of trivia. You get a ''behind the scenes'' look that you''d not otherwise get from a regular dictionary or trivia book. I found it interesting, captivating, and enjoyable to read. Recommended.

I have read several of the authors books and found them all to be a plethora of information and excellent reads. This book lives up to my expectations. Without leaving any spoilers it is safe to say this is chalk full of tidbits overlooked in history classes. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I love that I can read a small section and get a complete story or read as long as I like. I highly recommend this book.

I thought this was a children''s book and bought it for my 12 year old. She found it boring and didn''t get far into it. I have randomly opened it and read about Colonel Hogan and his sexual antics and his making of pornos, their words not mine. Not really something I would talk about at a family gathering like the book suggests.

One mans views on things he finds interesting. Teenagers won’t find this interesting at all. The stories are not stories just a commentary on things with facts thrown in. Who cares the difference between a hot dish and casserole for example. These things aren’t at all relatable to people under the age of 40, or 50 even. I’m 40, I wouldn’t impress any of my mates at the bar with any of this!

I really enjoyed this book. The stories cover a vast array of different topics and subject areas, which makes it perfect for anyone who likes to learn fun little general knowledge ‘fact-lets’. The tone is informative, yet humorous, with the author’s voice shining through to tell each story with his own slant. I dipped in and out of this book over the course of a couple of days as the format was great for doing just this. The stories included are all quite short, providing just enough information about each topic to give a good picture. I was intrigued by quite a few of the weird and wonderful facts, so I fully intend to look into some of the content in greater depth. An excellent collection of stories which are most definitely interesting! Thank you to the author and LibraryThing for providing me with a review copy free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased view.

Drivel. It''s definitely not for young adults, and it''s pretty useless knowledge. Poorly written and uninteresting.
