I have a rather serious trivia addiction. I love collecting small facts and having a thorough knowledge of a handful of terrifyingly specific subjects. So I tend to collect books like this one the way blades of grass collect dew on Spring mornings. It just happens.

This is a great little trivia book. In a way, it is more than trivia; some of our U.S. history is based on bad information. This can set the record straight in many instances. It is probably meant to be read in little pieces or used as a reference. I read it straight through and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.
