Basically a trivia book – definitely one for that "particular room" in your house – and worth having around just to keep on the shelf. I actually like this kind of book and would've given it a higher rating if it did not have sections like "Celebrities Who Dropped Out of High School" followed by nothing more than a list of names.

Recommends it for: humor, trivia
Decent bathroom book, but way too little bang for the buck. Pretty much The Book of Lists, but without all of the tasty, juicy detail. TBoL is packed tightly with as much as they could include, where this one looks as though it was stretched to fill space.
