1st Read: November 10 - November 10, 2015

There were some interesting things and even more, not so interesting things in this book.

One of the saddest stories of 2004 was not included. That being, the reckless murdering and gunning down of guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, (formerly of Pantera) while the band, Damageplan performed, along with many others at the show!

The cover pictured isnt the one for this book. But it was a quick, fun nostalgic journey through highlights from 1974 to 2011. Not always the ones I would choose (like where is Bill Gates?

This may be one of the lamest, most superficial books ever published, after Dianetics, of course.

The title promises a lot but the list of "1000 Biggest Moments" is no interesting ranking of pop culture moments, but a chronological list (without dates, btw) of pop culture crap that's happened from the Last Episode of the Brady Bunch (#1? No, just first.) and the factoid that "the first of some 76 million Baby Bookers turn 65 on January 1, 2011."

Very disappointing. C'mon -- is the murder of Ron

It's a great book for what it's meant for: providing random knowledge about events in pop culture. A great gift or item for the information junkie in your life.
