Trivia buffs of the world—this is your book! It’s crammed with 1,001 tidbits of information in such categories as Food & Drink, Television, Art, Business, Health, Religion, and many others. For example, did you know that every strawberry contains over 200 seeds? That the first organized labor strike in the U.S. occurred in Philadelphia in 1786, when local printers demanded higher wages? Or that Jack London was the first novelist to earn one million dollars from his writing? Highlighted with maps and illustrations, this compilation contains a wealth of lists, including the least densely populated countries, the educational institutions of the Ivy League, bands that played at Woodstock, and even the most annoying clichés, as voted by people in 70 countries.

Review: 1001 Things You Didn't Know You Wanted To Know

User Review  - Mehdi Annassi - Goodreads

a bit disapointed because a lot of "things i didn't know " would be only interesting for people who live in the US , and wouldn't really care to know them. if you are not from the US you will get what i mean as soon as you start reading it. Read full review

User Review  - Andy - Goodreads

It was very interesting, and a quick read. However, some of the facts I could have cared less to know about. It is a time killer, and one that I could finish quickly. Read full review
