Highly recommend this item. many times over... (Harry Murdock) - I got this book for my Kindle because I like trivia and fun facts kind of stuff but this book is all that and more. I've only read about 10% of it so far but it's great - not just the same old drivel that fills lots of similar books but I have also never laughed so hard in a long time. Written in an easygoing, fun style, you can read a lot or a little and get enjoyment out of it every time! (Greg Walz) - This is actually a GREAT read!! I did not want to stop reading it.

Learned a lot and also laughed a lot! (Kaitlyn O'Hara) - The title is not misleading; this book is filled with interesting bits of trivia. Written in a manner that causes the reader to relate, ponder, and on some occasions literally laugh out loud. I cannot wait to read the next one. (Joli Richardson) - I enjoyed this immensely. Good light reading with lots of interesting tidbits. Loved the little brainteasers peppered throughout the book. Enjoy! (Laura Jean Flagel) - Exactly what it says. Loads of interesting snippets of information and little things that I never knew. Terrific book and highly recommended. (George Field) - "The Big Book of Interesting Stuff" is jam-packed full of short (with few exceptions) interesting (with even fewer exceptions) and often ironic factoids, memes, jokes, and titillating tidbits. [...] It's worth twice the price he requests for it. My bride and I spent several evenings sharing sections of the book with one another and my own "copy" of the text has more highlights in it than a Michael Jordan NBA video.
