Described as "biography lite." This is a collection of snippets about famous people, each only a few pages long. They are compliled from NPR interviews of authors of biographies. I have completed about a dozen, and gleaned some interesting trivia. It is great bathroom reading... Example of an interesting thing learned: Margaret Thatcher took home leftovers from State dinners to feed to her family.
