  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 7/25/2013

    " Filled with so many facts about things that were totally interesting to me and others that I didn't care about but were interesting to read about anyway. It was a great read and fun to share with others too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 6/5/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn Lerch | 1/12/2013

    " A great book for trivia readers and others who just like trivia. The author of this book is NPR librarian who gives us many facts and figures. As a former library asstant (paraprofessional position) I found it very informative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul Childs | 1/7/2013

    " Lots of interesting snippets in this book. It was a quick read and had some stories in there I hadn't heard of before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 12/28/2012

    " Akin to a sports-stats book with a sense of humor, Malesky's (how cool is her job, librarian to NPR????) neatly organized fact-book is filled with fascinating information and a resource list that fulfills my Good Reference Work needs. Fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan Richardson | 12/8/2012

    " Normally I like books like this, but this one fell short. Some of the information was interesting, but it wasn't organized in any sort of way. Might be a good coffee table book, but other than that... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joshua | 10/22/2012

    " A fun book of the random facts that kee Malesky has found while doing research for NPR shows. Some I've heard before, others are entirely new. If you love random trivia this is a fun book for you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bryce Holt | 9/23/2012

    " Trying to meld the likes of Richard Zacks' "An Underground Education" and "5 People Who Died During Sex" by Karl Shaw, this is insipid information that should fall flat to any reference guru. At least Zacks was shocking and Shaw was fun. A total snooze. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gwonam | 9/10/2012

    " If you want to know how to write an unfocused, unentertaining book of trivia, read this for a stellar example. "
