    2. For anyone who might be a trivia buff, this book is a must for your library of hidden tidbits Written as a work aimed at the British market most references to places, people, and things are UK oriented it nonetheless offers wonderful pieces of information only a true trivia connoisseur can and will appreciate A very enjoyable read.


    3. The great thing about this trivia book is that it s arranged like a encyclopedia so it s very easy to look up that interesting bit of information you always wanted to remember Very useful for those boring party moments A great read.


    4. Despite its title this is a great read Every page has interesting and very funny imformation It s a book you can start from any page and thoroughly enjoy I think it is great for conversational pieces Everyone likes little know facts, That is unless you re a square


    5. Though the information itself was interesting, the cross referencing of it left something to be desired There were many entries consisting only of cross references, but not everything was cross referenced.




    6. I tried, really tried, to get into this book But I couldn t There are maybe a few interesting entries, but most are boring
